Here at iDoneThis, we have the modest aim of building productivity software that people actually use.
Our mugs on the first day of AngelPad
iDoneThis was founded by Walter Chen, Rodrigo Guzman, and Jae Kwon in 2011 in San Francisco, California. What grew into a company began as a weekend project by Walter and Rodrigo in early 2011. Rodrigo wanted to get back into shape—he needed an easy way to track his diet and exercise every day, and he couldn't find an easy way to do it.

As Rodrigo got into amazing shape and as more people used iDoneThis, we had an interesting insight—tracking and sharing what you get done every day actually inspires you to get more done.
In 2012, our members began telling us that they used iDoneThis to record their progress at work. We learned that companies like Google use an internal system similar to iDoneThis, and that inspired us to empower every company with a simple and powerful way to track and share accomplishments at work.
