ANNOUNCEMENT

How do you build a universal motivational tool? With a lot of help. Jon and I work extremely hard to find experts to support the Lift mission and who live in the spirit of incremental improvement each and every day.

To that end, we’re extremely pleased to announce that Lift has closed a Series A round of funding led by Bijan Sabet at Spark Capital. Bijan joins Evan Williams, Jon and me on our board.

Several experts in building startups and habits also joined this round. These investors are SV Angel and Adam Ludwin from RRE along with personal achievement expert, Tony Robbins, author of Getting Things Done, David Allen, and Emmy winning director, Greg Yaitanes.

Also, earlier this year we extended our seed investment from Obvious to include three angels. We never officially announced them. They are Tim Ferriss, best selling author of 4-Hour Chef/Body/Work-Week, Narendra Rocherolle of Smile/Webshots, and Jeremy LaTrasse of MessageBus.

Obvious continues their partnership with us and invested in this round.
