Today on the Growing with Purpose podcast, Paul Spiegelman interviews Max Spielberg, Co-Founder and President of Genexa Health. After becoming a father, Max embarked on a search for safe and organic medicines for his family, but couldn't find any. So, he made it his personal mission to create healthier, organic medicine for families like his, and co-founded Genexa in 2014. Despite the many doctors and manufacturers who said it wasn't possible, they stuck to their vision and kept moving forward. Through remarkable persistence and plenty of risks, the company went to commerce in 2016 and achieved amazing success.
On today's episode, Max shares how they took the business from a home-office operation to a fast-growing company with two offices, fifteen employees, and products in over 30,000 stores. Tune into Max's story here.
