One of Rhode Island’s premiere startups returns for this month’s Geek DInner after its first presentation over six years ago. And man, have they been busy…

shapeup-2015Today from its Jewelry District headquarters, ShapeUp‘s (formerly Shape Up The Nation) 100+ person team has firmly established itself as a heavyweight in the rapidly growing corporate wellness industry. In use by over 3 million employees at major corporations across 138 countries, ShapeUp’s social wellness platform provides a powerful suite of employee wellbeing offerings, including fitness & nutrition challenges, stress management programs, mobile apps, integrated wearable devices, and a robust financial incentive management system.

At the March Geek Dinner on Wednesday the 18th, ShapeUp Founder & CEO Rajiv Kumar MD and Ned McConnell, Application Architect, will give an overview of ShapeUp today, a demo of their impressive offering, and a sneak peek at where the company is headed next.

See you there! (And be sure to come on the early side as ShapeUp will be buying a round or two before the presentation.)

… and while you’re there, please like our Facebook page. If you want to join our very-low-volume email announcement send an email to Jack Templin,, with your name and affiliation. As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:

  • The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at AS220’s excellent bar and restaurant.
  • Doors open at 5:30pm. Socializing, eating and drinking up until the 25 min presentation + q&a around 6:30pm. Afterwards, back to socializing, eating, drinking…
  • It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great).
  • Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about AJAX, mash-ups, start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, etc. etc. etc.
  • There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
