The New Year is around the corner. Many of us are going to make –again– resolutions for a better and healthier life. But 90% of those won’t get past the first two weeks of January. Can technology change the story? It is about time, as the new generation is more concerned than ever with building a meaningful life. Once dominated by headset-wearing gurus and their physical product lines of books, workbooks, and CDs, the self-help industry, which represented $11bn in 2015, is undergoing major changes. For the digital natives, using an app is the obvious solution. As opposed to a book, which one reads and quickly forgets about, an app can offer continuous guidance for its users to stay motivated and stick to their resolutions.

For those who don’t want to miss their life, GOALMAP offers a multi-thematic app which helps set and track goals, and get support to reach them. GOALMAP positions itself as a coach in your pocket, a smart and kind partner for your personal development.

Six months only after releasing its free beta version on the App Store and Google Play, GOALMAP has already gathered more than 40,000 members, many of whom live in major cities. Boasting a rating of 4,5/5 by its users, GOALMAP is a digital coaching app which offers an efficient method to ingrain positive habits and build the life we want to live. It allows users to set their objectives and track their progress. They can choose among a broad variety of suggested goals, or create their own customized goals, and share them to inspire their friends. The app then allows them to monitor their progression on their personal dashboard and visualize what is left to accomplish. It also supports them on their journey with expert tips and encouragements to keep them motivated. KarateKat, GOALMAP’s own virtual coach, shares his daily wisdom in a funny and quirky tone which helps de-dramatize the self-development journey! GOALMAP is thus the first multi-thematic coaching app. The most popular goals on the app include "Exercise" (11,000 members, or 30% of users who have set goals), "Drink water" (25%), "Read regularly" (25%), "Lose weight" (23%), "Wake up early" (18%), "Save money" (13%), and "Meditate" (13%). Members on average have 4 to 5 goals.

GOALMAP has three characteristics that make all the difference. First, it offers a very advanced level of customization and autonomy. "The recurrence for your goals, the deadlines, how you track them… Everything is your choice, and you can freely set the time for reminders. This is an efficient way to fight procrastination", explains Damien Catani, GOALMAP’s founder. Then, the app provides inspiring and high-quality content, adapted to the goals the users have set. Last but not least, GOALMAP doesn’t segment life into compartments (physical, emotional, professional, etc.) but blends the various objectives we have into a coherent and holistic life project.

Bombarded every day with desires which are not theirs, searching for meaning in life, the Millenials are eager to take charge of their own lives. GOALMAP "helps them help themselves" on this path of freedom. With their smartphones in the pocket and their heads on their shoulders, this generation is resolved to write its own destiny. The same goes for GOALMAP which has set itself the goals –of course!– of launching internationally during CES 2017, gathering a community of 1 million members by the end of 2018, mainly in Europe and in the US, and developing partnerships with prominent players in the coaching and training space. The young startup will release in the coming months a premium version for its users and a corporate offer for the companies which want to promote wellness for their employees. In this regard, GOALMAP intends to secure seed capital to accelerate its growth and targets a turnover of €15mn by 2020.

GOALMAP is among the 500 best startups worldwide selected by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) to exhibit at Eureka Park during the 50th CES in Las Vegas, booth n° 51660.

What sets goalmap apart from the other goal apps?

  1. goalmap is not limited to health and fitness goals - it encompasses all fields of life in a transversal and integrated approach (career, personal finance, social life, creativity, travels, etc.).

  2. goalmap is more than a habit-building app - It supports all types of goals: good habits you want to ingrain (read 15 minutes a day) or bad habits you want to fight (watch less TV), simple goals (visit 1 new country each year) and more complex ones (have a healthy lifestyle), not only short term but also long term and one-off goals (run a marathon, write a book).

  3. goalmap is highly flexible - Thanks to its innovative goal setting approach, goalmap enables users to customize their goals to levels unseen before. Instead of picking up standardized objectives, you choose what you want to track, how high you want to set your targets and for how long. With goalmap, you set goals which are truly yours - this is the key to success.

What does the future of goalmap look like?

We are crazy enough to think we can change the world, and we are resolved to make it happen. We aim at being a leading player in the digital coaching space. “We see a future full of opportunities to help as many individuals as possible reach their goals”, explains Damien, the founder of goalmap.

We believe that self-quantification is only meaningful if it serves the deeper purpose of self-realization. It's not about counting what we we do, but rather doing what counts. It's in this spirit that we work everyday on enhancing our goal-setting platform. Here are our short-term priorities:

  1. Leveraging the power of the community to help everyone reach their goals;

  2. Integrating selected wearable devices and third party APIs;

  3. Raising funds to accelerate our development.

goalmap has been invented for all the individuals who want to be the architects of their own lives and realize their full potential. Join the movement!
