At XSeed Capital, we continuously look to invest in companies that are led by inspirational founders who surround themselves with world-class teams and advisors and pursue a mission that has a meaningful impact on the world. With that context, we are excited to partner with co-founders Selina Tobaccowala and Al Lieb and announce our investment in Gixo, an application that offers highly motivational, professional coaches teaching live classes to people of all fitness levels in all locations, making exercise more accessible in people’s busy lives.
We simply could not pass up the opportunity to work with Gixo, as the company has “the whole package” when it comes to their Founders, Mission, and Team.
Founders: Selina and Al previously co-founded Evite. Selina held executive leadership roles at IAC and was most recently CTO and President of SurveyMonkey. Al most recently co-founded and was CEO of ClearSlide. Check!
Mission: “Our mission is to improve global health and activity rates by offering motivating and engaging social fitness experiences.” Check!
Team: In addition to a fantastic technical and operations team, we had the opportunity to co-invest with Reid Hoffman from Greylock Partners and Aileen Lee from Cowboy Ventures. Check!
Congratulations to Gixo on your launch – we are excited to partner with you in the many great things to come!
