ATLANTA, September 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Any Distance built digital and physical experiences to motivate people to be active and announced today that it has been secured $1.5 million in a pre-seed round. Its new activity tracking platform for iPhone and Apple Watch plays and inspires movement of all kinds.
The round was led by Bungalow Capital with participation from Overline, Fitt Insider, Shorewind Capital, OliveX and The Gramercy Fund. It is also joined by more than 30 angel investors, including design-led and fitness-obsessed executives from companies like Athletic Greens, Sentry, Heap, Uber, GitHub, Cruise, Parade, Google, Fictive Kin, Fohr, Linear, LinkedIn and Apple.
With a mission to improve global wellbeing through movement, Any Distance enables users to share their active lives in new ways while pursuing physical activity with an experience that puts privacy first, while earning unique collectibles in the process.
By synchronizing activities, visualizing routes in 3D and AR, and creating beautifully designed photo and video templates, Any Distance is about motivation and celebration, not competition and comparison.
“By reinventing activity tracking, we’re not just creating a great digital experience, we’re creating a lifestyle brand,” said Founder and CEO of Any Distance Luke Bart. “By prioritizing inclusivity, privacy and security while embracing gamification, we are building a powerful platform and an inspiring community.”
“We’ve been fans of Lukes and his distinctive style for a number of years,” he said Michael Kohn, managing partner of Overline. “We jumped at the opportunity to support the vision of an elegant, privacy-first way for people to share their fitness goals and progress.”
“As a user since day one, it was clear that the Any Distance team had a whole new approach to activity tracking,” commented the Fitt Insider co-founder Anthony Vennar. “With a focus on design, community and gamification, they are defining the future of social fitness experiences.”
“Any Distance has created a world where people can better engage with their love of fitness,” Nick Fragnito added by Shorewind Capital. “The way Any Distance combines safe and beautiful shared activities with gamification through AR collectibles is truly motivating and we couldn’t be happier to support them.”
