Greatist is a growing NY-based health media startup that’s popular with tens of millions of millennials. It takes a no-B.S. approach to body image, peer affirmation, and self-actualization that’s shaped by, and made for, the next generation. It was the result of its founder/CEO Derek Flanzraich’s personal frustrations—growing up as a big kid who drank up to six Dr. Peppers a day—struggling to find a health brand he could trust. Naturally, he chose to create his own, and now Greatist is driven by the knowledge that health is more critical to this generation than ever before.
