Name: Moshe Lebowitz
What are you building, and who benefits most from it?
Healables builds tech that includes personalized, wearable, mobile, remote, AI-powered digital gear and software for sportstech and healthtech as devices that use a customized and always optimizing microcurrent electron stream to help people recharge and recover quicker and better from common disorders such as overexertion from routine muscle movements, muscle tiredness, minor muscle tears, back pain, and more.
What is one of your startup’s most impressive accomplishments?
Healables has been chosen and approved by Professor Amital at Sheba Medical Center, recognized as one of the world’s top 10 hospitals for clinical trials on fibromyalgia.
What has been the biggest challenge so far, and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge is public speaking. I love helping people, and I love science, but I used to have terrible stage fright and would be afraid to speak in front of crowds. I didn’t realize that a huge part of entrepreneurship and making this dream a reality is doing lots of things that are out of your comfort zone, like public speaking. I draw my inspiration from Hasidic thought. It’s about taking the attention off myself, me, my ego, and my fears and placing it on others that need help. It’s not about me, it’s about them—they need my help, and I can’t allow my own fears to prevent them from getting the help they need.
What tool or app could you not live without and why?
171 founders interviewed so far. Get interviewed in 10 minutes, via a simple form, for free.
Grammarly. There are so many ways to say the same thing, and the little tone checker is a godsend—it helps me adopt a more cooperative, collaborative tone. Words are the most powerful things in the world, and Grammarly helps me use them better.
What marketing strategies have worked for you?
As we have been focused on creating the best products for the best user experience, we have yet to launch our marketing strategies in full force, so it remains to be determined which ones work best for us. We’ll be happy to update you when we have more to share about that.
Can you share any financial data about your startup?
Healables has raised $1.2 million to date and is heading into its next fundraising round, which will include a crowdfunding round. (Reported on August 02, 2023.)
What has been your biggest business failure to date? What did you learn from it?
My biggest business failures have a common theme: I followed conventional wisdom and expert advice instead of my inner voice. Innovation means doing things differently. Something in the world needs fixing and that means change. People who have the souls of entrepreneurs need to learn to hear their inner voice and have the confidence to listen to it and the chutzpah to lead and motivate others. A good rule of thumb to follow is to do what makes sense.
What’s the best specific piece of advice you have for other entrepreneurs?
Trust in God, believe in yourself, and do what makes sense.
