outRise Is Live!

Hi I'm Greg Clement, CEO and co-founder at outRise.

outRise is an app. It makes it easy to find, create and share experiences and adventures.

It’s what you can use to discover the perfect night out with your friends. It’s what I’ll use to create a cross-country road trip with my family. 

It will change the way we explore the world, and help us do it more often with the people we love.

I'm so excited to tell you that after months of hard work, you can now download the first version of outRise from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store! (Speaking of...look at those pretty-looking buttons below).

What Is outRise?

outRise is an app that takes the pain out of planning. It turns your phone into a self-guided adventure device and puts curated experiences complete with stops, notes, photos, turn-by-turn directions and more - right at your fingertips.

It helps you enjoy the best parts of life with the people you love.

Because - well wait. Let’s talk about this for a second. What do you really love most about life?

Is it how many likes your post gets? The big house? The nice car?

These things are cheap. They fade with time. They’re extra baggage. They’re empty, hollow weights that slow you down in this life.

Remember, we’re talking love here.

We’re talking about the love that makes us human.

And as humans, we love to explore our world.

We want to explore the Northern Lights with our best friend while camping up in Alaska. We want to go on an epic cross-country road trip with our daughter that we’ll never forget. We want to watch the Milky Way rise over the Pacific Ocean as we’re enjoying a bonfire on the beach with our fiance.

We want to share the best things in life with the people we love. Because sharing life with the people we love is what we are made for.

So then why are there so few apps that help us create and explore experiences?

It’s because the best things in life don’t come from one-click purchases. Experiences are not that simple.

Experiences take hours of planning; coming up with an idea, finding places that fit into that idea, vetting those places to make sure they’re legit, sifting through reviews for tips on what to do/eat/drink/see at those places, plotting out your stops in a way that makes sense, getting directions to each of those stops, finding out the best time of year to go, looking at whether there are good places nearby, looking into those places…

It’s exhausting.

And I think it’s one of the biggest reasons people choose to stick to their comfort zone.

But the comfort zone is not where you grow. Pushing that comfort zone through experiences with the people you love is the very definition of growth, and of growing together.

outRise makes those experiences easier.

That’s why we created it. From the, "what should we do today?” question to the, “it’s too much planning excuse”, enough is enough.

It’s time to get out and explore the world more.

And that starts with putting outRise in your hands.

Where We’re At With outRise (BETA)

Someday very soon, we want outRise to put millions of experiences, right at your fingertips.

We want to help you get out there and explore the world, even if it’s in your own back yard. And we know when the world opens back up, outRise will be the perfect tool to help you connect with the people you love through experiences in your hometown, across the country and around the world.

So after humble-bragging that our app is awesome (ok last time - it really is), we also want to be realistic about where we’re at. 

Today, outRise is still in the BETA phase. 

What’s that mean? It means we’re continually improving the app and regularly adding new features. It also means that this is the first version of outRise, and that not all features are 100% where they will be. 

On this, I humbly ask for your patience.

If you have feedback on any new features, suggestions or anything else, feel free to drop me a line at hello@outrise.com. I'd love to hear from you!
