Stefanie Jewett is the founder and CEO of Activvely, the premiere social-pairing app that connects you with platonic fitness buddies. Stefanie’s path as a technology entrepreneur isn’t a conventional one; as a recovering journalist, she spent five years covering hard news at CNN, until her creativity breached the spillway and Activvely was born. A Miami native, Stefanie grew up in a Spanish-speaking household, her Cuban roots never far from her heart. Living in the Washington D.C. area, inspired her to pursue a journalism career and her passion for news would see her at the U.S. Congress, National Republican Senatorial Committee, WSET, the Alliance to Save Energy and ultimately, CNN. Stefanie returned to Atlanta with a singular goal: to disrupt the traditional purpose and misconceptions of ‘swipe’ technology platforms solely being used for dating and help Atlantans connect for recreational fitness.
