Pavlok Wins “People’s Choice Award” & Boston’s Best Tech Startup

At the first WeWork Boston Demo Day, we pitched Pavlok against some amazing companies and we were proud to be voted for the People’s Choice Award. 🙂

“Ever since this startup took to Indiegogo last summer—which was 508 percent funded at $269,702—it’s gained substantial buzz for its shocking device, which aims to bust bad habits and change users’ behavior. Pavlok submits an electronic shock when you don’t accomplish the healthy goals you’ve set for yourself. Software engineer Justus Eapen, who led the pitch, told the audience that he tested out the device himself in an attempt to stop drinking beer in the later hours of working. Eapen says Pavlok worked like a charm, and he also claims he’s spoken with many other users who have been able to stop smoking cigarettes and biting their nails—among other things.”
