Tentrr, a New York City-based peer-to-peer marketplace of campsites, closed $8m in Series A funding.
The round was led by West Venture Partners with participation from Obvious Ventures, Great Oaks Venture Capital, Halogen Ventures, Rivet Ventures and WorldQuant Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Joanna Rees, founder and managing partner of West Venture Partners, has joined the Tentrr Board of Directors.
The company will use the funds to extend to the West Coast.
Founded by Michael D’Agostino, Tentrr is a consumer technology marketplace that connects landowners with people seeking to explore outdoors in campsites on privately-owned land. The company’s camps are equipped, already set up and designed to be used by those who have never slept outdoors and by experienced campers.
