This Millennial Entrepreneur Is Connecting the Dots Between Fitness and the Bottom Line

It’s been a little over four years since Navid Rastegar, founder and CEO of FitBliss, left his job at Salesforce to embark down the entrepreneurial path. In those years, Rastegar and his team have created a new market in the digital health industry and they’re calling it Health Productivity. Shaped by the data-proven assertion that employee job performance directly correlates to a person’s health, FitBliss is connecting the dots, helping companies optimize employee job performance by linking consumer health data with work productivity.
