Sportaneous was great…now it will be the Greatist.
It is with pleasure and enthusiasm that I announce Sportaneous is being acquired by Greatist. Greatist has been the fastest growing site in health & wellness for the past year and half, and our merger is a shining example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
Sportaneous has always been a technology company at its core, with a team of some of the best developers (and people) I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. We launched two mobile apps and had several others in the works, all with the aim of fulfilling our mission to use technology to remove the barriers to exercise, happiness, and health.
You often hear words like “bittersweet” in these kinds of announcements but our team could not be more excited to join forces with Greatist, the definitive emerging leader in the fitness, happiness, and health verticals.
Derek and I have been friends for quite some time, and once we realized how much more we could accomplish together, the decision was easy. We have already started building what we believe to be “the next big thing” in health & wellness. Although I can’t give too many details away yet, I will post updates on this blog as soon as they are available.
I want to thank everyone who has supported us, including our friends, families, investors, and (most importantly) our loyal users. We couldn’t have come this far without you, and we are excited for your continued support as we work to build this new product and make Greatist the biggest and best company in health and wellness.
Stoked to continue this journey,
