Jason Jacobs is the co-founder & CEO of RunKeeper, a mobile fitness platform that incorporates a unique blend of tracking, sharing, analytics, and coaching to enable runners and other fitness enthusiasts to get motivated, stay motivated, and improve their results over time.
RunKeeper started with a smartphone tracking app for runners and cyclists, and built up a large, passionate global community of millions of users. Over time, they’ve expanded to enable 3rd party apps, devices, and services across a broad range of health categories to tie into the platform via their Health Graph API, enabling users to keep all of their health information in one place.
Prior to founding RunKeeper, Jason worked for 10 years in VC-backed technology companies, always longing for the day when he could start his own. He holds an MBA from Babson College and a BA from Wesleyan University.
