The WayBetter Way™
We’ve developed a novel approach that combines games, social reinforcement, and financial incentives. With our science partners from Brown Medical School, we were just awarded a $1M NIH research grant.
How it Works
Amp up your motivation by betting on yourself in our challenges. Everyone who finishes splits the pot.
In 2013, we reimagined weight loss as a game with DietBet. In 2015, we breathed new life into fitness trackers with our walking game, StepBet. In 2017, we applied our motivational formula to nudge people to run regularly with RunBet. In 2019, we were awarded a $1 million NIH research grant to help smokers quit. In 2020, we celebrated our 1,000,000th WayBetter player and $100M in cumulative payouts to our winners. Finally, we launched our flagship goal-sharing network inside the WayBetter app.
To learn more about our culture at WayBetter,
“Seeing our players make amazing progress reminds me that WayBetter is all about doable goals. I’m here to help players achieve whatever they set their mind to.”
“When players struggle, I like to do what I can to make their journey a bit easier because it’s so rewarding to see our players succeed. I love being a ref.”
“As a WayBetter player since 2014, learning to improve myself made me want to help others. I love getting to see our entire community make positive changes in their lives.”
