Fitness2Flash, an all-health, women's and fitness community, is one of 13 finalists in India to be funded by Facebook's Community Accelerator Programme (FCAP) 2021.

Aside from training and early access to new products, Fitness2Flash will receive up to $50,000 in funding from Facebook to help fund the community's activities.

In the last six months, approximately 13,000 communities participated, and Fitness2Flash is one of 13 finalists from India for Facebook's CAP-2021 programme. FCAP-2021 was announced in May 2021 to assist and empower leaders to harness the power of their communities and turn ideas into action.

Facebook's Community Accelerator Program was announced in May 2021 and aims to help and empower leaders to harness the power of their communities and turn ideas into action.

Initially, Fitness2Flash was founded as a Whatsapp group with a motley group of 100-odd women in 2015. Soon, it moved on the Facebook platform, and the journey of transforming lives on a larger scale kick-started. Today, about 350k plus women have been benefited healthwise from F2F, and the task of encouraging every woman to take care of their health continues.

F2F has its presence on social media like Facebook, Instagram, and a website, where one can avail of the services offered. "Fitness2Flash began its humble journey in the world of women's health and fitness using the Whatsapp platform," said Rinku Shah, founder of Fitness2Flash. In a very short period, F2F has grown exponentially worldwide, with more and more women joining Facebook for personal grooming, healthcare, and fitness. We are pleased to be associated with Facebook and even more pleased to receive funding to further our objectives."
