Dave Lukas Chats with Cavan Klinsky
95: The Millennial Entrepreneur Revolutionizing Medical Practice, Cavan Klinsky
This week’s Misfit Entrepreneur is Cavan Klinsky. Cavan is the co-founder of Healthie. Healthie is a practice and client management software for nutrition and wellness professionals. The platform gives providers the tools they need to succeed in coaching and care, allows them to build closer relationships with clients, and helps contribute to a society with better healthcare outcomes.
Here’s what I love about Cavan. He is a self-taught programmer who went to college, met his business partner, took action, and created a software and a company that now services thousands of health and wellness professionals in over 25 countries – and he’s still in college!
There’s a lot we can learn from this young entrepreneur who is wise beyond his years.
Cavan got interested in health and wellness when he was early in High School when he was running on a treadmill and started to have trouble. He felt tired, dizzy, and almost passed out. When he saw a doctor, they told him he was born with a congenital heart defect. He ended up having to have heart surgery, being the in ICU, and for several months was not allowed to do any real physical activity.
It was during this time that he got into coding and built his first webapp. He also began ti immerse himself in health studies and getting himself back to where could do sports and activity. He ended up wrestling during the rest of time at school and winning a NYC championship. He also started a freelance web development business at the same time.
He then went to college at University of Pennsylvania that is where he met his co-founder and came up with the idea for Healthie.
They launched and got their first client in just a few weeks.

If you are an active person like me, you should be rewarded for it. As a husband, a father, and a business owner, I know how important it is to make sure you have the right life insurance in place to take care of your loved ones should something go wrong, but is too much to ask for the company selling me that insurance to take into account the fact that I love to run, swim, bike, hike, and just about anything else I can do to stay fit? – I don’t think so. And that is exactly what Health IQ does.
