Jonathan Levi has built startups, invested in them, and even sold one. He thrives on creating products and technologies that improve the way people live. As a lifelong entrepreneur, he has started small businesses since before he could reach the kitchen counter. While he is not a programmer, he is passionate about using technology to dramatically improve the world we live in. He is also an outspoken “lifehacker,” avid speedreader, animal lover, fitness enthusiast, amateur photographer, and all-around eclectic.
After successfully selling his Inc 5,000 rated startup in April of 2011, Levi packed up for Israel to gain experience in the Venture Capital industry. While in Israel, Levi enlisted the help of speed-reading expert and university professor Anna Goldentouch and Machine Learning expert Dr. Lev Gold, who tutored him in speed-reading, advanced memorization, and more. Levi saw incredible results while earning his MBA from INSEAD, and was overwhelmed with the amount of interest his classmates expressed in acquiring the same skill set. Since acquiring this superlearning skill, he has become a proficient lifehacker, optimizing and “hacking” such processes as travel, sleep, language learning, and fitness.
More recently, Jonathan has launched a blog and podcast called Becoming SuperHuman, which decodes the secrets behind some of the world’s top performers in various fields. He continues to host the weekly show with world-renowned guests.
In addition to publishing his own bestselling book, Levi has been featured in such publications and programs as the Wall Street Journal, Nana10 Television, The Silicon Valley Business Journal, The SoloPreneur Hour, The Smart People Podcast, and Donna Fenn’s latest book, Upstarts! How GenY Entrepreneurs are Rocking the World of Business and 8 Ways You Can Profit from Their Success, among other blogs, podcasts, and publications.
