Yonder gets a match through acquisition by Luvbyrd

Outdoor activity specialist Yonder has been acquired by Luvbyrd founder Mike Keshian.

The four year old company helps users find and share outdoor leisure trips such as hiking and fishing.

It received seed funding of $2 million in 2015 from Vermont Seed Capital Fund, Monster Worldwide and private angel investors.

Luvbyrd is a dating app that aims to match individuals who like outdoor adventure.

Of the acquisition Keshian says:

“Adding Yonder to our portfolio was a no brainer.

“We plan to enhance the app with new features and upgrades including Yonder Adventures and Trips, private and group messaging and more meet-ups.”

According to a statement, Yonder is also fundraising to invest further in its technology.
