Burn and earn
Peter Schultze is an exercise enthusiast, and he’s encouraging his classmates to work up a sweat, too.
A senior in the U’s Carlson School of Management, he created Plyo, an app that rewards students for exercising on campus with points that can be redeemed at local restaurants and stores.
Plyo now has more than 10,000 users, and Schultze is ready to roll it out to other colleges and universities.
A recipient of multiple scholarships, Schultze says Plyo’s success took him by surprise. “It’s been a whirlwind,” he says. “And it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of everyone at the U.”
