Behavioral Technologies Group, the maker of the PAVLOK behavior change wearable device, announced this week that they have been named to the Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 100 Brilliant Companies list for 2015. The annual list highlights companies that have turned brilliant ideas into products and solutions.
The story in the June issue of Entrepreneur Magazine recognizes companies in ten different categories ranging from finance to health. PAVLOK is recognized as one of the best companies in the “Health, Medical and Wellness Tech and Wearables” category for helping people break bad habits like smoking, nail biting, eating sugar or spending too much time on social media.
“We’re thrilled and honored to receive the recognition” said Maneesh Sethi, CEO and Founder of PAVLOK. “Entrepreneur Magazine naming us one of the 100 Brilliant Companies of 2015 shows that others share our belief that Pavlok can upgrade humanity through behavior change”.
Sethi and his team raised over $275,000 in a successful Indiegogo campaign in November 2014, and have since sold over 500 prototype PAVLOK devices to a passionate group of supporters who are looking to upgrade their lives by breaking their bad habits for good. The company will be launching the production version of the device in July 2015.
Pavlok has received critical acclaim from major news outlets for their habit change wearable, including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, and The Colbert Report. They were also named “Best Tech Startup of 2015” by Tech In Motion and recently accepted an invitation to participate in the prestigious MassChallenge startup incubator program.
