Our vision is to use cutting-edge science and innovative technology to empower individuals to lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
Happify was founded in New York City in 2012 by Tomer Ben-Kiki, Ofer Leidner, and Andy Parsons—three serial entrepreneurs united by a belief that technology should be used to make peoples' lives better. A few years ago, we learned about the field of positive psychology—the scientific study of what makes people thrive and lead meaningful lives. The findings had enormous, life-changing potential—so why didn't more people know about it? With our expertise in gaming and technology, we realized we had a unique opportunity to bring the science to life in a fun, engaging way that could help people everywhere live more fully.
At Happify, we’re taking a 21st-century approach to building a well-lived life. We now know that happiness is a skill that can be strengthened—and we want to make the benefits of scientific discovery readily available and usable by you in an interactive way. In a world that's increasingly stressful and complex, we want to provide fun, individualized, and science-based pathways to greater happiness. Above all, we're here to empower you to take control of your emotional life—and we're giving you the tools to do it.
