FOUNDER OF SPRAYABLE INC.

Benjamin Yu


Ben Yu is the founder of Sprayable Inc., which has developed a groundbreaking topical delivery system to more effectively administer some of the world’s most commonly used supplements. After taking a leave from Harvard to accept an inaugural Thiel Fellowship, where he was awarded $100,000 by billionaire Peter Thiel as one of the top 20 entrepreneurs under the age of 20, Yu began work on Sprayable to solve a personal pain point: getting the energy he needed on a daily basis without sacrificing his health. In 2013, Sprayable launched the world’s first topical caffeine spray to do just that on Indiegogo, successfully raising over 1100% of their funding goal and garnering international media attention from the New York Times, ABC, the Atlantic, TIME, and more. In 2015, Yu launched Sprayable Sleep, which surpassed even Energy to become the most crowdfunded consumable product of all time. To date, hundreds of thousands of bottles of Sprayable are being used by customers in over 90 countries around the world, and Sprayable continues to rapidly expand.
