Tag: Fleetly

While I’ve been trying to ramp up the running after coming from back-to-back Achilles injuries, it just wasn’t enough to keep the Consort team competitive in the Startup Challenge at Fleetly. A team of one against other teams with more than one was dragging us down. But today, Dominic and his mega miles joined in, bringing us up to first place! We also welcomed another team player, Emily J. Now if I can just coerce more of the team to join in… hmmm 😉

Calling all hustlers, hackers and entrepreneurs – you’re invited to the Fleetly Startup Challenge

While we all love working at a startup and enjoy trying to make a difference in the world, we know it’s challenging and sometimes all consuming. As Paul Graham said, “what a startup (bootstrapped or not) takes is 100% of your performance, not 100% of your time. And optimizing for performance means spending some time on maintenance.” So here’s our chance to get the startup community in shape, have a little competitive fun, and promote a good cause.

The details:

  • Competition runs from October 25th to December 15th
  • Register in teams of 2-6 people on Fleetly (if you’re bigger than that, make more teams)
  • Log all exercises and workouts for points
  • The team with the most points at the end wins $500 being given in their name to Right to Play, a charity that improves the lives of children in disadvantaged areas through the power of sport.

There are going to be a few extra prizes for the winners, as well as something for all the teams that pass a set threshold, (Fleetly is keeping that secret for now) so get out there do some push-ups and go for a run in the park before the snow starts falling.

Fleetly also would like to encourage everyone to help make that $500 donation turn into a $2,000 donation by adding to the prize money on our Right to Play fundraiser site, which you can link to through the challenge page. They know many startups are bootstrapped right now but this really is a great organization that is making a big difference in people’s lives.
