The Business

MyFitnessPal has grown into one of the largest digital health and fitness communities, with 75 million users logging into the company’s iOS and Android applications. Collectively, its community has logged more than 14.5 billion foods, 364 billion calories burned and 1.2 trillion minutes of exercise. Along the way, the company built a rich dataset on food and nutrition-related information on a global set of consumer products and restaurants.

The Partnership

After years of being bootstrapped, Accel helped lead MyFitnessPal’s Series A investment in 2013 in support of founders Mike and Albert Lee. Accel worked actively at the board level, and the company was acquired by Under Armor in 2015.
