Smile - Invent - Build - Care - Empower - Evolve

Hi, I’m Ron
Welcome :)

I like inventing new things, building stuff (and growing companies), investing in great people with big ideas who love getting things done (well) and who care a lot. I also love writing & speaking about topics that really matter (both fun and serious), and teaching/learning particularly at Stanford.

When I build and run companies
When I write or speak about the more serious matters I focus on
And when I speak and write about the lighter stuff I focus on
I love inventing, especially when the solutions I create can solve hairy audacious human challenges and have the potential to help millions of people everywhere:
My not-for-profit initiatives bring people together and/or help people live healthier happier lives and are always free for all :)
Sometimes I buy companies when they have great tech and/or great people AND when it’s faster and easier to buy than build (but honestly, building is always more fun!)
I’ve traveled in 81 countries on 6 continents, and I’m still on track to fulfilling my lifelong goal of visiting all the countries around the world and doing good for people who live in them. Feel free to ask me about my moon-expedition plans!
I grow fruit trees and flowers (yes, I was able to successfully grow banana trees in Silicon Valley ;) alongside 12 other fruit varieties; I love cooking and hosting at home especially with/for friends and family (deliciously healthy and fun!); I enjoy running outdoors and working out every day (LMK if you’d like to join :)) and needless to say, I’m a bit of a health nut… And finally, I’m looking for a new pup (Do you know a fun loving Golden Retriever mom?)
…and if you’d still like to learn about me even more, you can find more details on the Ron Gutman FestiHealth page, or just hit me up in one of the clubs I’m running on ClubHouse (The Smiling & Positivity Club, the Leadership Reinvented Club, or Reinventing Health\Care Club), or DM me on LinkedIn and let’s chat!
