SuperBetter is a very good thing in the world that has helped over 400,000 people so far tackle real-life challenges like stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and traumatic brain injury.
Unfortunately, the San Francisco company that built the original app & website ran out of money and closed its doors about 2 years ago. As a result, the product and our amazing SuperBetter community have not received the attention that both deserve.
Today, we are happy to announce that SuperBetter has a new owner!
SuperBetter has been acquired by SuperBetter, LLC, a new company in Chicago that is reimagining how we care for mental health and wellbeing in America and around the world.
We are super excited to work with Jane McGonigal to realize the potential of SuperBetter to help people around the world be stronger for life. Jane is our Chief Science Officer.
The purpose of today’s post is to simply say hello and let you know that we are starting to “turn the lights back on” at SuperBetter.
We’ve begun to make improvements, and will make many more in the coming months. The SuperBetter Forum is now fixed. We are thrilled to see new members already adding their voice to the discussions. A few wonderful SuperBetter fans have even volunteered to moderate the forums while we are building out our new team!
Our goal is to create an amazing product experience. As you can imagine, after 2 years the product we inherited has bugs and is in need of updates! In fact, we found the Android app to be in such bad shape that we pulled it from the Google Play Store for now. We’ll bring it back after it is fixed.
We’re also working to get our customer service team up & running. Please be patient as we do. We welcome your feedback, suggestions and questions. The best way to reach us is to visit http://feedback.superbetter.com or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we are in awe of the incredible community that has rallied around SuperBetter. Thank you to all who have shared stories about how SuperBetter has impacted your life; to those who have encouraged each other; and to those who have volunteered to serve as allies on the SuperBetter forum.
You are awesome. We are truly excited about the journey that we are about to take together.
Keith Wakeman, CEO Mike Hostetler, CTO
