This week, I welcome Gabe Priyev, founder and CEO of IncentFit a company that pays people to exercise. The funds come from employers or health insurance companies and they do all the administration of the benefits.
It's essentially gym reimbursements on steroids.
Gabe bootstrapped this new startup just 3 years ago, and it is now a profitable and growing business.
After studying Industrial Engineering & Operations Research at UC Berkeley, he went on to consult for several companies including Boston Scientific, Lennar Homes, iGo Cars, and United Airlines.
Wanting to further his people management and operations skills, he took a position at McMaster Carr as an internal consultant and team manager.
Gabe left there to pursue an MBA and masters of engineering from Kellogg but dropped out to pursue IncentFit, a startup that pays people to exercise.
Gabe is an avid runner, swing dancer, and world traveler.
