Who We Are
Competish (kom-puh-tish) was founded to help people achieve their fitness goals using the two most potent motivators: your social network and money. Users provide a buy-in to compete with their friends weekly for cash prizes. The first 'Competish' module will be a weight loss challenge, with others to be introduced regularly.
Why We Started
69% of adult Americans are overweight. We spend our time and money on fad diets that don't work and get upset when nothing changes. A few years ago, our founder completed a weight loss challenge that changed his life (link) - somehow, competing with friends and for money provided the incentive to turn his life around. We started this company to leverage the latest research in behavioral economics to help those who want to be the best versions of themselves.
