Rajiv and Rhode Island Pride on Executive Suite
Like I said the other week — Friday is movie day here at ShapeUp, and this one comes straight from the top.
Our CEO and founder was invited on to Executive Suite, a local news interview show that picks the brains of Rhode Island business leaders to get a sense of where they come from, what their business is doing, and where we’re going.
In his segment, Rajiv focuses on the Rhode Island roots of ShapeUp — how this state’s tight knit community of entrepreneurs, investors, health researchers, and doctors paved the way for a spunky community walking program to become a global technology solution. For all my years working at ShapeUp, its the most holistic backstory I’ve heard him tell, and it brings the full culture and identity of ShapeUp to light. We’re here to change the world, and we are on a big mission, that is for sure. But at the same time, we’re the product of a small city and a strong state-wide community, and that identity is a part of every single thing that we do.
Take a look and listen.
