Invest in From Fat to Finish Line

Because we are changing lives one step at a time.

“We envision a world where running shoes replace diabetes medication, where the person who couldn’t walk around the block can now run marathons and where crossing a finish line changes a lifetime of ‘I can’ts’ to ‘I can.’ 


Crossing the finish line of your first race is life changing for someone who never thought they were an athlete. Our goal is to make runners out of those who never dared to dream it possible and we have the expertise, passion, and commitment to make it happen. 


At From Fat to Finish Line, our core values are to inspire movement and empower community so no one ever has to run alone again.”

-Angela Lee; Chief of the Tribe and CEO

Key Facts


  • Our running community organically emerged as a result of the documentary film of the same name. 

  • Now over 12,000 members strong, our community is experiencing over 20% month over month growth. 

  • As the community grew, members began asking for resources specialized to overweight runners. 

  • We provide training programs, information, and resources specific to an overweight demographic.

  • We are a tribe-like team that provides virtual and in-person support with members spanning the globe.

  • We’re a lifestyle, not a diet program. Weight loss, good health, and happiness are side effects.

  • Members graduate to Mentorship status keeping them connected to the community. 

The Underserved Market

There are currently 26 million overweight runners in the U.S. alone. Many feel ignored, insecure and alone. Overweight runners are a rapidly growing and underserved vertical in a $40 billion a year industry. 

Almost half of all runners in the U.S. are not being properly supported and we’re positioned to serve those people. 

The Running Team Owned by the Tribe

Our community is the heart of From Fat to Finish Line. We are a tribe of like-minded people from all over the world who struggle with weight but have found a desire to get out there and run. We bond over common experiences, face similar challenges, and celebrate our triumphs in ways in which many traditional runners cannot relate. 


Because committed and passionate people are the reason we exist, we are excited to offer ownership to our members as well as anyone else who wants to back the movement.  Through crowdfunding, together we can change people’s lives one step at a time. We will inspire, support and empower people to ensure that no one is ever alone on their running journey again.

FAQs

Can I use a credit card?

No, you must invest via direct transfer from your bank account or a wire transfer. In general you are not allowed to buy stock with borrowed money. There are certain exceptions like using your existing stock portfolio for a margin account but StartEngine does not have that option. 


What about the Perks? 

Unlike donation or rewards based crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, you are not pledging. You are purchasing stock in our company and becoming a part owner of the company. The perks are simply a thank you for larger investments. 


If I invest more later and reach a perk level does that count?

Yes, you receive all the perks available based on your total investment at the close of the campaign. Perks are cumulative so if you invest $1,500 you get the memberships, owner jacket and the spot on the Ragnar team. 


Can I sell my stock?

Under U.S. securities laws, during the first year that you own the Class A Common Stock, your shares can only be resold under the following circumstances:

  • In an IPO;

  • To the Company;

  • To an accredited investor; or

  • To a member of your family or the equivalent, to a trust controlled by you, to a trust created for the benefit of a member of your family or the equivalent, or in connection with your death or divorce or other similar circumstance.

After 1 year you can sell your stock on the open market. StartEngine is launching its secondary marketplace to do just that in March 2017. 


How do I get my stock?

We are using FundAmerica (www.fundamerica.com) an SEC Registered Transfer Agent to handle stock issuance. Your stock will be issued electronically. Once the campaign is closed you will receive an automated “certificate” (.pdf) and investor log-on information so you can track your investment. 


Will there be reporting?

Yes, not only will the annual report be available on the fundamerica site, all investors will receive it via email in addition to news and information throughout the year via our investor relations group. 


Why do they need my bank information?

You must provide your bank information to enable funds transfer to purchase the stock. StartEngine uses SSL Certificate protection that encrypts your information for your protection. Their SSL certificate can be viewed here: https://seal.digicert.com/seals/popup/?tag=xc1igR9i&url=www.startengine.com&lang=en&cbr=1448144534795 


If you are uncomfortable providing this information you may still invest via wire transfer. 


How much can I invest?

The minimum investment is $150. Investors are limited in the amount they can invest based on the following criteria: 

  • If either the annual income or the net worth of the investor is less than $100,000, the investor is limited to the greater of $2,000 or 5% of the lesser of his or her annual income or net worth.

  • If the annual income and net worth of the investor are both greater than $100,000, the investor is limited to 10% of the lesser of his or her annual income or net worth, to a maximum of $100,000.
