After a successful launch, Rise Nutrition pursues angel investors to take the platform to the next level

Boston, Mass. – February 20, 2024Rise Nutrition today announced the Fuel to Rise™ platform is live, providing its comprehensive nutrition requirement database curated by registered dietitians to more than 3,000 users to date. Targeted toward college and professional teams, the platform uses cutting edge analytics to take the guesswork out of nutrition and deliver optimal solutions, customized for each athlete. Fuel to Rise satisfies the NCAA mandate requirement for nutrition education, and athletes from the NCAA, the Big Ten, Major League Baseball, and the East Coast Hockey League are using the platform to optimize their performance.

“Fuel to Rise provides real-time nutrition status and performance metrics to help athletes determine meaningful steps to performance improvement, said Jesse Papriro, Co-Founder, Rise Nutrition. “Rise Nutrition has tapped into a big market opportunity, and after achieving a 60 percent increase in revenue year-over-year, we are ready to take our platform to the next level. We’re excited to seek angel investors to support the rapid expansion of our team, increase customer acquisition, and invest in our product to make it a must-have tool across college and professional sports.”

Nutrition optimization is important to performance, but teams are also responsible for the well-being of their athletes. A 2020 study by The Sport Journal estimates that “20-25 percent of collegiate athletes engage in maladaptive eating and weight control behaviors, such as binge eating, excessive exercise, strict dieting, fasting, self-induced vomiting, and the use of weight loss supplements.” Fuel to Rise enables team dietitians and support staff to quickly and effectively screen every athlete in 10-15 minutes for eating disorders, and tailor sustainable behavior change to sport, position, and individual biometric analytics. This tool can save more than 400 hours a year on screening and onboarding for a registered dietitian working with college or professional athletes, leaving more time to work with individuals and provide personalized support.

“Nutrition is one piece of the puzzle when it comes to an athlete’s training program and with the right tools, assessment, and plan of action nutrition can provide a critical component to keeping athletes on the field,” said Kara Lynch, sports dietitian for athletes across the Minnesota Twins organization. “Fuel to Rise provides me with insightful data to strategically upgrade an athlete’s individualized nutrition plan, in real time, while I am completing a nutrition consult.”

Now that Fuel to Rise has launched, Rise Nutrition is pursuing capital from angel investors to take the platform to the next level. The company is seeking to build out its workforce, increase customer acquisition, and continue upgrading and refining the Fuel to Rise product.
