Sagacity GmbH

Sagacity helps casual fitness seekers consistently stay on the path of fitness for longer duration and helps them achieve their fitness goals.

Sagacity GmbH, founded in 2018 is a member of the Cyber Valley Start-Up Partner Network. Sagacity has expertise in AI and Machine Learning models that predict user stickiness in a cluster, and in matching & recommendation systems.

The problem we are solving is that a large number of people want to become fitter but do not consistently pursue fitness activities. A high proportion of such people depend on external motivation, encouragement and support to continue on the path of fitness. Nearly 73% of people who set fitness goals as new year's resolutions give them up after three months, less than 20% of gym members visit the gym consistently and less than 20% users of fitness apps use them regularly.

We are currently developing a fitness app that utilizes scientifically proven effectiveness of close, personal communities to significantly increase the likelihood of a person achieving her goal. Our app increases user stickiness by creating a closed network of friends to help a user achieve her fitness goals in a high trust, emotionally engaging environment. The app offers high level of personalisation to the user in the form of personalised fitness content as well as matching the user with professional fitness trainers.

A large number of apps such as Strava, Runtastic, Freeletics and others target serious athletes and self-driven fitness enthusiasts. There are very few apps for people who need external motivation and support to remain focused on their fitness goals.

Our USP is:

  • Increase stickiness through closed, personal communities which support & motivate users stay on the path of fitness.
  • Use of innovative achievement metrics that engage the user emotionally with the process of getting fit.
  • Application of proprietary technology to predict individual user stickiness and matching user persona with relevant health & fitness professionals using Machine Learning.

We have self-financed the app so far based on our internal cash accruals, which have suffered because of the Corona crisis. We need to raise funds for marketing the product in the first phase of launch and to further enhance the product.
