THE LET'S DO THIS STORY
Let’s Do This launched in December 2016 and we now have offices in San Francisco and London. We're a young and ambitious team motivated by a shared passion for helping people discover and take part in life-changing challenges.
We participated in Y Combinator in winter 2018, and have since raised over $20 million in funding from leading Silicon Valley VC funds, angels, and sporting legends Serena Williams, Usain Bolt and Paula Radcliffe. Having completed our Series A funding round in November 2019, we now enter our next phase of growth and expect to increase # of employees from 30 to 100 in 2020.
Running, triathlon, cycling, obstacle racing, and many other endurance sports are booming, but it's really difficult to find great events. With the largest database of events in the world and an engaged community of endurance sports enthusiasts, we're making it easy to find great races, whilst helping race organizers to reach new participants.
