Venture Packs! - A High Tech Way to Connect with Others & Enjoy the the Outdoors
Story by @LauraBaverman on her @EnterChange Blog
The virtual world and the physical world often seem at odds in the 21st century.
Kids on social networks and playing video games aren’t as easily found riding bikes and playing sports outdoors. Adults glued to computer screens during the day and television screens at night haven’t the will or energy to chase their kids in the backyard or join a sports league.
Danny Stull, a former California rafting guide, has seen the power of the outdoors to unite families and help individuals relax and reflect. At age 26, he’s also a digital native who has spent much of life balancing his many outdoor pursuits with high-tech interests.
In case you are wondering what the out doors have to do with health... Getting out into the outdoors is an excellent way to get exercise, to reduce stress, and to improve your overall sense of well being. Danny combined his love of the great outdoors with his desire to help improve health. Do you have a passion that you can channel into improving the lives of people who transition between care settings and the people that care for them?
If you do and you are wiling to do a little bit of work (see unofficial submission requirements here), you can win prize money, gain exposure to investors and employers, and (if you choose) gain support to cultivate your idea into a business concept.
