You have such a prolific background and profile. Kindly give us a brief history of your career in relation to Ebelola Bioenergetic solutions?

Thank you very much. Like many people, I do not like dis-ease. As a young boy, I thought that so long as we eat good food, the body would be healthy, we would be in the right frame of mind to study, to work, to exercise and to go about our daily lives. So I desired to become an Agricultural Engineer so that I could provide mechanical tools to boost food production. Later on, I realized that there was no medical doctor in near sight within my family, whereas there were many family members in the different areas of engineering already. Therefore I changed my mind to study medicine, and hoped to become a paediatric neurosurgeon. Well, in the end, I went on to study Biochemistry, and now I lead research in diabetes complications and infectious diseases.

To fulfill my desire for a holistic lifestyle, I took up the practice of a few martial and chi arts, including taekwondo, taichi, qigong, reiki/energy medicine and the traditional chinese medicine. I started learning them during my research visit to India.

I also love to make money. I remember that as a boy, among other efforts of innovation and entrepreneurship, I would mould hot plates from clay, fix heating elements, wire, plug and offer them for sale.

At this point now, while I keep building on the structure on ground, I appreciate that I have been able to harmonise all the things I love to do. I call it STREEAAMMIEbeyondSTEM program of the Ebelola Bioenergetic Solutions. It encompasses Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Education, Agriculture, Arts, Mathematics, Medicine, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

With the world edging towards biotech solutions, kindly expose us further to future prospects of Ebelola Bioenergetic Solutions?

You are correct. The future is tech. So for biotech, like the rest of the tech hybrids, it is AI- and IoT-driven. And for us at the Ebelola Bioenergetic Solutions, we are deploying easy and user-friendly equipment for our service delivery. For instance, at our present level of MSME, we use point-of-care, bioinformatics diagnostic tools and a set of holographic reflexology/acupressure equipment (mostly brands of Kedi Healthcare Nigeria Ltd) that use high frequency vibration, efficient biomagnetism and heat infrared technologies for treatment. These provide safe, non-invasive and efficient healthcare services to our clients. We combine these with supplements and health-promoting self-paced exercises to restore and maintain health. As part of our indigenous biotech solutions involving cell culture, we locally produce adult bovine serum and modified Eagle’s medium for education and research purposes. We hope to scale these soon.

What does your business bring differently to the ecosystem of service providers?

We have designed a health program called the Slow Body Movements for Wellness and Vitality. It is available as a hybrid program based on taichi, qigong and bagua practices that synchronize breath, movement and intention in a guided manner to strengthen internal and vital organs according to the ancient Dao’s (Nature’s) Ying and Yang principles.

With practicable advice on sleep, diet, exercise, breathing, meditation, and prescription of herbal supplements, we are able to deliver efficient treatment plans to our clients.

What are the biggest challenges to being an entrepreneur and how have you been able to overcome them?

The challenges can be many, including electricity, taxation, inflation, pricing of goods and services, publicity, staff recruitment, customer retention, exchange rate, book keeping, and of course combining startup with a regular job, among others. To overcome the challenges, I rely on the use of generating set, joined a trusted traditional chinese medicine company (Kedi Healthcare Nigeria Ltd) for leverage, go to the marketplace where everyday people facing health challenges can be found, get online presence using the available social media marketing options, attend startup/business schools, and for now recruited minimal staff, while providing leadership for my team members in the Kedi multilevel marketing distributorship. I also remain passionate, resilient, and very committed to our clients.
