The fruits of Limeade’s first and only acquisition are starting to show.
The Bellevue startup today launched a new mobile video and quiz app that helps companies promote wellness for their employees and rewards them for positive behavior.
The new product, called Limeade Interactive, utilizes short videos and quick quizzes that are all available on a smartphone, helping employees earn points and rewards for taking steps to improve their health.
Founded in 2006, Limeade already develops software to help corporations and educational organizations improve the health and wellness of workforces. But Limeade Interactive, the company’s first add-on product release, incorporates more visually-engaging technology and is a direct result of Limeade’s acquisition last year of fellow Seattle-area startup 9slides, which built online training software.
“This is a direct result of the 9Slides acquisition, as we’ve integrated their interactive digital technology with our Limeade platform to offer new ways for people to participate in well-being challenges,” said Justin Jed, vice president of product management at Limeade.
Limeade counts more than 100 employers as customers, which include organizations like The Ohio State University, Jamba Juice, Kohl’s, and others. The company employs 180 people and has raised $34 million to date, most recently reeling in a $25 million round in October 2014.
