Want to stay healthy? Then healthy food is the most important thing you must focus on and RunHealthy is the startup which is focusing on this. This is a Bangalore based startup by two friends, Sourav and Mukul who want to provide healthy lifestyle products to people who are really conscious about their health.
“Some people those who are conscious also, they simply hit the gym for a Healthy lifestyle but they are not aware of the most important thing that’s – Diet, says Sourav.
We got one of the founders Sourav to share his startup journey with us. Let us see what he has to say about RunHealthy, What made them start this and How they are working hard to mark their presence in the market?
Give a brief info about your startup?
RunHealthy is a Health Tech startup that solves the biggest problem that people are facing in the current generation is “How to lead a Healthy lifestyle”. Everyone is just guessing. They remain confined in between the walls of a busy schedule. Some people those who are conscious also, they simply hit the gym for a Healthy lifestyle but they are not aware of the most important thing that’s “Diet“. The reason is if they are interested too, they don’t get time to prepare it of their own. Run Healthy is here just to answer all those unsolved questions which people are guessing or searching till now about their Health. Our mission is to provide a friendly platform and healthy products to the Patrons where they can nurture their health from Exercise to Diet. Right now RunHealthy has just launched Natural Peanut Butter with a wide range of varieties and also will be launching varieties of healthy Products soon which will definitely help people of all the age groups to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our vision is to serve each and every home across India with Our Healthy Products and RunHealthy has taken a step towards Making India Fit, so “LETS MAKE INDIA FIT“.
What made you start your startup and what problem does it solve?
We started hitting the gym two years back for making our self-fit. During that phase, we didn’t have any knowledge about the food we were consuming for making our self-fit. So that time we were not getting proper results and we started thinking about our diet and the product which we should consume and not consume. We started researching the products and the ingredients, and then figured out and listed the effects of those ingredients on human health. Then we decided not to have such products containing harmful ingredients. After some time while doing lots of research something clicked our mind and we came to know about the scenario of people that all want to stay healthy but due to lack of knowledge and availability of healthy products they are not able to help themselves. So we thought that why can’t we solve the problem and that is the reason we launched our first product “Natural Peanut Butter” and a lot more Healthy Products will be launched soon.
Tell us about yourself, your previous jobs/ventures? What were you doing before this startup?
We are graduates of IET Lucknow(B.Tech Computer Science Engineering). We both of us started working in Bangalore. One of us was working with Perfios as Perl developer and other was working with an E-commerce startup in Operations. After doing 1 year of job we finally launched our own startup.
Where is your startup based out of? Why do you think that is the best place for you?
RunHealthy is based out of Bangalore started in 2017. Now a days people are much more concerned about Health. People of Bangalore are so much busy that they don’t get time to go to the gym or do some physical exercises. So we came up with the idea to launch our product in Bangalore so that it can help the ongoing busy people in maintaining a good life balance. We will be launching our products in other states too and we think we are solving real-time problems.
As a startup founder, what are you paranoid about? What keeps you awake at night?
As we are Heath-Tech Startup, we are paranoid about making people’s lives healthier in any way possible with our services and products. we are paranoid about solving real-time problem those exists in the food industry of India so that could lead a healthy lifestyle, if India would be healthier, that will help people work more efficiently.
And what makes us awake in night, there are couple of things like how to make our product available to all door of India in best affordable price so that all can consume, how to make our process smooth so that all could get our products easily, how to make trust in people’s heart with our quality and services, thinking about new and unique products those would nourish people’s life toward healthfulness.
And there are lots of things those makes us awake in the night.
Who are your competitions and how are you better than them?
We have very few competitor in the market the one make similar kind of product who are situated in the different state of India. But things which make us stand out with other brands, that is our quality of the product, unprecedented delicious taste, and value for money (structure of price per product).
How hard is it to have a work-life balance as a startup founder and how do you manage it?
Being a founder of the startup balancing work and personal life is very tough. Sometimes we need to compromise our personal life in order to achieve some goals and to work for our dreams and also for the dreams of several people who want to Stay Fit. We have set our own targets and we manage to reach those targets either before going to bed or before the timeline. And for keeping our self-calm we also hit the gym daily except Sunday and that’s what helps us to work efficiently.
Have you raised funding? If yes, then we would like to know the details. If no then please tell us if you are looking to raise.
No, we did not raise any funding till now. But we are looking forward to raising some funding in upcoming future.
What’s the biggest misconception people have about you? Why do they have that? What’s the reality?
Sometimes when people hear about the Peanut Butter, even though they are health conscious they don’t know about what Peanut Butter is and the main thing that hits their mind is the Butter that contains some bad fats. They have that because of lack of awareness. The reality is Peanut Butter is very healthy for all age groups and contains Healthy fats those helps in reducing body’s bad cholesterol and the peanut butter also stabilize Blood sugar level and also contains a high amount of protein that helps in building muscle and its keto friendly and lots.
What gets you excited about this company?
RunHealthy’s product will be consumed by each and every people across the country which will help people to lead a healthy lifestyle and that will also reduce the consumption of unhealthy product available in the market those are making peoples lives worse.
