Ignite2Disrupt: CARROT Honored by TiECon Detroit
Recognized for its disruptive approach to health and wellness, CARROT was honored with TiE Detroit’s “Award of Excellence” during TiECon Detroit Ignite2Disrupt 2017, Michigan’s largest entrepreneurial conference.
According to TiE Detroit, more than 500 organizations were nominated for the “Award of Excellence”, but only 20 groups were selected as recipients of the prestigious honor, including CARROT.
“This is a great honor for us. It speaks volumes that TiE Detroit would recognize our unique approach in using technology to drive healthier behaviors,” said Founder and CEO Michael Antaran who accepted the award on behalf of the CARROT Team.
“They were impressed with our gamified approach to wellness, but they were probably more impressed when they saw the data. They saw that we get results – that CARROT motivates people over both the short and long term to make increased movement a new, healthy habit.”
