About Us

WayBetter is reinventing motivation itself. We make a whole new category of games that help people stick to their commitments — from eating better to exercising more to learning to cook, play the guitar, or speak Spanish. Our games use an innovative mix of manageable goals, social support, and financial incentives. DietBet launched in 2013, StepBet in 2016 and RunBet in 2017.

Our approach is based on behavioral science and it works. To date we’ve had 500,000 paying players who have collectively lost million pounds and taken 50 billion steps. And we’ve paid out over $40 million to our winners.

In our games and in our work we believe that fun is the secret to sustainable success. As such we care a lot about our culture and practice what we preach by making it enjoyable, social, and rewarding.

WayBetter is the rare company with a double bottom line: we succeed when our customers do. Our mission as a company is to create games that improve people’s lives in very real ways.
