We are an award-winning behaviour change technology company
BetterPoints is an award winning behaviour change technology company with strong societal, technological and commercial achievements
BetterPoints was founded in late 2010 by a small team of social entrepreneurs and investors who anticipated dramatic pressures being increasingly placed upon society in the uk – and around the world – by economic conditions, changing demographics and culture.
This team – with a combined expertise in technology and behaviour change – had a vision of a highly scalable, evidenced, data-led, licensable reward platform for motivating and rewarding people to manage their health better, travel more responsibly, live more sustainably and contribute to the wellbeing of their communities.
They wanted people to be healthier, safer, happier and live longer. health care, social care, environment and government infrastructure would benefit from a reduction in demand and costs, supported by evidenced outcome data.
To do this, we built our Behaviour Change Management System (BCMS).
CIVITAS 'Bold Measure' Award, 2017
SRM, the transport authority in Bologna, Italy won this award for their partnership with BetterPoints to reduce the number of single-occupancy car journeys in the city. 15,000 people took part.

Healthy Streets Award for 'Modal Shift', 2017
We worked with Reading Borough Council on their BikeSmart Reading programme to encourage cycling. More than 600 people actively took part and made 30,000 cycle journeys. Together, they cycled 331,762 miles, equivalent to 13 times round the planet!
