Born from gaming, Zwift is a fitness company on a mission to make more people more active, more often.
Zwift utilizes massive multiplayer online gaming technology to create rich, 3D worlds ripe for exploration. Zwifters can join thousands of cyclists and runners in immersive playgrounds like London, New York, and Paris, as well as Watopia, the in-game world with new and interesting places to discover.
Zwift is a company that Patrick has been connected to for a long time — helping founder Eric Min in a mentoring capacity for years. As Zwift grew, it built impressive competitive moats, making it the go-to platform for large scale virtual cycling events such as the Tour de France in 2020. The company is entering a new chapter as it develops the hardware to complement its immersive software platform, and provide a fully integrated at-home fitness experience
