About Gainful

Gainful ( makes personalized protein powder, delivered directly to your doorstep.

Gainful was born from a simple realization: the fitness industry is inherently backward. More money is spent on telling people how they should look than on helping people reach their goals. We understand that everyone is unique. That’s why we created a product that helps you reach your goals – not set your goals for you.

We launched in 2017 and have been growing rapidly despite having a small team (currently 8 full time employees). Gainful is backed by some of the world's best venture investors, including Y Combinator, Soma Capital, Dorm Room Fund, and BrandProject.
