Product

Pact is a mobile consumer health and fitness startup that conquers excuses with $$$ as a motivator!

Members make a Pact of how many days a week they want to exercise, or goals they have about healthy eating habits. To make goals more interesting, members decide how much they’ll put on the line to pay if they DON’T get to the gym or hit their eating goals. If they meet their Pact by checking in at their gym with our iPhone app, or by submitting community verified food photos, they receive cash rewards, paid for by those who didn’t exercise.

Why Us?

We are a small, seed-funded startup backed by Khosla Ventures (Keith Rabois), Techstars, Mike Hirshland (formerly Polaris) and Katie Rae (Managing Director, TS Boston). Because we’re so early stage, you will have a huge impact on our product, strategy and the lives of our 650,000+ customers.

We are changing lives, according to our user reviews and the Guardian, which said Pact "gives you hope for the human race".

Unlike other startups, we pay attention to revenue. Users have earned $1.75M in rewards in 2014 alone for sticking to their goals and changing their behavior, one Pact at a time.
