VU alumnus startup listed in top 5 startups MT/Sprout

June 28, 2021

GymStory – co-founded by VU Amsterdam alumnus Business Administration Lars van der Wal – has been named by MT/Sprout in the top 5 startups working hard from the Netherlands to conquer the sports world!

GymStory (resident of Amsterdam Venture Studios on VU Campus) makes it easy to keep track of fitness activities and share them with others: a kind of Strava for fitness enthusiasts. To do this, the startup combines a physical sensor with a smartphone app. Thanks to €200,000 in funding, the startup could use the past year for research and development. Now that the fitness lockdown has been lifted, we are curious to see how the startup will develop further!
