Currently, there is no easy way to challenge one’s friends on social bets. It’s really difficult to track, share and manage these bets.
This currently needs to be done in an offline fashion.
The solution is StakeHaul, a mobile platform which enables a fun way of social betting with your friends on anything, anywhere, anytime, making everyday life events more fun.
For example, you can bet your friend $5 that he cannot do fifty pushups in a minute.
You can also bet without setting any stakes (no money, just fun). The options are endless and every time you win the bet, you get paid (either money or in terms of fun).
Enjoy fun time with your friends, family and even colleagues by turning mundane life events into fun activities. Turn corporate events into fun ones by betting on various games.
Enable stronger team-bonding with bets. Challenge your friends on anything, manage all your challenges and even get paid every time you win the bet.
Founder & CEO
An outgoing youngster, I grew up in the suburbs of Milwaukee participating in a range of sports, from basketball to wrestling to ping-pong. You name a sport, and I would play it.
And friendly wagering, or betting among friends, was always part of the equation. My friends and I would bet on outcomes of everything from the Super Bowl to pickup basketball, with the loser footing the bill for the next arcade game. In college, it turned into pool or golf, with the stakes being a beer at the local pub. I graduated from UW-Madison in 2009 with a degree in Economics.
The most popular bet I make on the app is on golf. I also love to travel, and I visited four different countries in the first half of 2017. My profile picture is set on the backdrop of Lisbon, Portugal.

Ted is a Madison native and 2003 UW grad (Spanish and Latin American Studies). His college and post-college worked included coaching soccer and swimming at a variety of ages and levels. After working in the Madison schools as a Spanish translator, interpreter, and teacher then spending the next four years at Epic, he hit the books once again in 2011, this time pursuing a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. At the same time, he co-founded a startup with a friend – BlueTree Network – that, much to his surprise, actually worked. BlueTree originally intended to be a technology company, providing a transparent, efficient online platform to facilitate healthcare IT consulting projects. The company pivoted and evolved significantly since then, and is now an Epic consulting services provider, problem-solving with and providing talent to health system throughout the US and Canada. Between consultants and internal employees, BlueTree has quickly grown to over 225 employees and takes pride in being a company that people actually, truly love working for. Outside of the office, Ted loves soccer, racquetball, and most of all his son Benny.
