Retrofit pioneered data-driven weight loss three years ago. Since then, 90% of our customers have lost weight, and the average customer has lost nearly 20 pounds.

|Company Profile:||Retrofit (www.retrofitme.com) is a Chicago-based startup that is doing some actual good for the world. We are tackling one of the biggest health problems effecting the United States and much of the rest of the world: unhealthy weight and obesity. In the US today, over 68 of adults are overweight and over 35 are obese. A recent report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) predicts that 75 percent of Americans will be considered overweight or obese by the 2020 (the highest rate of any country surveyed). The medical costs/implications of this epidemic are staggering - by some reports over 150 billion a year.
We are not just another diet or weight-loss company. Retrofit is science-based, data-driven and outcome-focused. Our protocol was guided by our impressive advisory board which is comprised of leading experts in weight loss, nutrition and exercise. There is enormous interest in the health and wellness space. There is no shortage of investor interest in us - we recently closed our Series B VC round, raising 5 million.
