Mental Health Check, Founder, Moises Barbera, featured at TechBlast UK
Updated: Aug 10
Starting a Startup is often seen as a glamorous job and that of the entrepreneur of the lucky guy that gets to leave the office early but this is NEVER the case.
Entrepreneurs put in long hours every day of the week to keep the business alive, fighting the most times challenging cash flow and the ever-changing strategy to stay ahead of the competitors.
A recent study taps into the EXPECTATION vs REALITY of becoming an entrepreneur and the prominent publication TechBlast reached out to Founder & CEO Moises Barbera to share his journey launching Drill Surgeries 3 years ago and how he fought loneliness on this bold mission to Improve Healthcare Through Technology.
TechBlast UK recently made an announcement on LinkedIn to present Moises' feature:
The founder of a Liverpool #MedTech startup says team sports show the value of a support network.
Moises Barbera Ramos, 23, sometimes works 70 hours a week building a startup that uses algorithms and #AI to improve efficiency in surgery to stabilise broken bones and reduce excess radiation from X-rays.
The Drill Surgeries Ltd. founder and part-time magician wouldn't change it for anything. This is how he combats loneliness as an entrepreneur.
This article covers how our founder, Moises, used his previous experience playing football in Spain to understand that no one should navigate challenges on their own, as he says:
When I was a goalkeeper, I and my teammates would rely heavily on our coach, not because he trained us on the field but because he balanced our state of mind. When we were winning he made sure we stayed focused and didn't let that occasional success cloud our judgement. Similarly, when we were losing he made sure we didn't lose control and pushed us to continue giving our best and try to turn that situation around.
When we are running a startup we are alone, at least initially until we have a team, so how can you manage those long and lonely days with ups and downs as you take on more and more challenges? Asking for help is necessary, and finding that coach figure outside my workspace is the way I did it.
