Learn more about Greatist from the founder himself, Derek Flanzraich in this edition of Fast Five.


1. What one word describes Optimal Health?


2. How do you describe your company to your mom?

Greatist is a destination site for science-backed but fun, expert-approved but friendly healthy lifestyle articles, news, tips, and more. It's all about championing the idea that you don't have to be the greatest all the time, but just a Greatist and make healthier choices some of the time for true, long-lasting happiness.

3. Do you have an interesting article that describes your founder story?

Probably the most interesting story is when I got six-pack abs in six weeks and wrote about how terrible it was. Seriously, you can read about it here.

4. How does your company help consumers be healthier or change behaviors?

Greatist inspires and informs people to make healthier, happier choices the way they want to do it, not the way others define it for them.

5. What health innovation are you most excited about? (and it could be your own!)

I'm most excited about the potential for online and digital tools to enable offline connection at scale. Real impact most often happens between people in real life. I'm excited about technology finally getting to a place where it can help make that happen, then get out of the way.
