Our Story

We are a bootstrapped startup that began our journey in 2014 as an enterprise gamification platform called Playlyfe.

It grew out of our lifelong passion for video games, design and solving hard problems. We were soon recognized among the Top 10 Gamification Platforms in 2015 across the world.

Catalyst, created in 2017, is our solution for modern organizations looking to leverage behavioral design, real time analytics and gamification to transform their workplace culture and achieve ground breaking results.

The Founders

Johny Jose

From his childhood, he's had a deep love of games, and a dream of being a game designer. He worked for 6 months as a developer at CERN, Switzerland during his 2nd year at college making software that simulated high energy particle collisions. Fascinated by the potential of gamification he began his journey as an entrepreneur after college in the employee motivation and workplace engagement space.

Loves philosophy and quoting from war books, has developed a newfound love for meditation.

Kumar Harsh

An voracious learner, he caught the photoshop bug in highschool, and it's grown up on him. Started Playlyfe with Johny, and now handles the overall design. If you think there's one pixel's off somewhere, you know where to direct your pitchforks.

Has an insatiable hunger for sci-fi novels, gaming, webcomics, football, and quizzing.
