We look for innovative ways to have a measurable impact on the growing obesity epidemic and help get people moving. We founded the company in 2009 in response to exciting academic research at Harvard, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pennsylvania. That research -- and ongoing academic and industry research -- suggests that:
Even small cash rewards can increase the effectiveness of weight loss and step programs.
People are more effective at losing weight and getting more active when their own money is at risk; and
Social networks play a large role in the spread of obesity and will likely play a large role in reversing obesity.
Our continuing mission is to bring the results of academic and industry research to real world people.
