Dinis Guarda Interviews Sunny Gurpreet Singh - Wellness Visionary, Founder RoundGlass, and Creator of Wholistic Wellbeing Concept

By Hernaldo Turrillo - May 24, 2021
  • The Founder of RoundGlass, Sunny Gurpreet Singh is a wellness leader whose mission is to inspire people to embrace wholistic wellbeing, creating a happier, healthier, and more joyful world for all.
  • The interview with Sunny Gurpreet Singh continues in the tradition of Dinis Guarda citiesabc openbusinesscouncil YouTube Series interviews with leading personalities in their fields.

“Wholistic wellbeing is something that everyone should follow because it makes one feel better; it is all about becoming a better person. Mentally, emotionally, and physically. The wholistic wellbeing notion explores all the verticals, channels, ways that one finds wholeness. This includes meditation, yoga, physical exercise, et cetera. Achieving wholistic wellbeing is like getting a degree in life,” Sunny Gurpreet Singh.

Combining technology, meditation techniques and innovative initiatives, the successful entrepreneur and wellness leader Sunny Singh has made his life mission to bring wholistic wellbeing to the world. An ambitious goal that he is fully committed to through his company, RoundGlass. 

And Sunny Singh tells us his journey in the latest global thought leader guest for Dinis Guarda citiesabc openbusinesscouncil YouTube Series. The interview starts with a fascinating and detailed description of Singh’s early life experiences and the inspiration behind his later work. Further, the two discuss the idea of wholistic wellbeing, which is a concept that Sunny aims to popularise, and his work for RoundGlass.

“Everything that happened in my life up to this point, has been in preparation for RoundGlass. The same way, I was destined to become an entrepreneur. Some people are lucky to find their calling in life early. But for the majority of us, as the journey of life unfolds, we are continuously soul searching. The time spent soul searching is, however, not lost. It prepares you for what your real life purpose is, it shapes you, and it shapes your character”.

Singh comes from a humble background. He grew up in a lower middle class family. His father was a sportsman, a hockey player; one of the best Indian hockey players at some point, something that he achieved through sheer perseverance and hard work, as he did not even have proper shoes to begin with. 

Later on, he received a scholarship to study in the United States. After graduation, Singh had worked at three different companies, realising very quickly at each that none of the jobs fulfilled him. He wanted to use his expertise solving supply chain and enterprise integration problems for a profitable organization that was making a meaningful difference.

So he set about trying to tackle one of the knottiest challenges facing American business—health-care costs. Singh believes making the industry more efficient by managing information in real time at the lowest possible cost would save enough to cover all uninsured Americans.

Edifecs was started using his consulting money, and his credit cards. At the time, he did not know about venture capital, or about investors. 

When he launched the Bellevue-based Edifecs in 1996, he set some ambitious goals: no venture capitalists and no debt, but instead, growth and profit every year. He has guided the company through economic downturns and the recession and accomplished his goals: Edifecs is a profitable, self-funded, employee-owned company with no debt—as well as one of the fastest-growing health-care technology companies in the United States.

Edifecs helps improve the ways health-care organizations manage and leverage the information they exchange. It also streamlines and automates manual business processes such as enrollment, claims and payments management. The result? Greatly reduced administrative costs and on-target regulatory compliance without the risk, time and cost of replacing existing IT infrastructure.

The idea of wholistic wellbeing

Singh discovered wholistic wellbeing in his 40’s. By that time, I achieved life success in the conventional sense; turning my healthcare company, Edifecs, from a struggling to an aggressively growing business. 

He realised that:

“Working a lot and hard is never productive. Doing less things, but doing them really well is much more beneficial than working hard. Habits are important”.

With RoundGlass, Singh decided to bring the wholistic wellbeing concepts to life. RoundGlass is a company that gives people the tools to live good and fulfilling lives. 

“Wholistic wellbeing is something that everyone should follow because it makes one feel better; it is all about becoming a better person. Mentally, emotionally, and physically. The wholistic wellbeing notion explores all the verticals, channels, ways that one finds wholeness. This includes meditation, yoga, physical exercise, et cetera. Achieving wholistic wellbeing is like getting a degree in life. It means learning how to live. It gives one tools to answer the following questions: How do I sleep/eat/relax? How do I become a joyful learner for life? How do I give back to nature? How do I give back to the community?”

Achievements

Singh has been honored as Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2011 for the Pacific Northwest in the Technology category.  

An independent panel of judges representing regional businesses, academic institutions, and community leaders selected Singh for the award, which recognises outstanding entrepreneurs who are building and leading dynamic, growing businesses.  

Singh has focused on hiring the best and the brightest of the healthcare industry elite. 

“Edifecs would not have achieved the success it has today without the talented team of experts who are passionate about developing streamlined, quality solutions for the healthcare industry”.
