“Steve Welch is an entrepreneur whose ideas fly like sparks off an anvil.”- Philadelphia Inquirer

Steve Welch is the cofounder and CEO of Restore Hyper Wellness, an established Entrepreneur, an active angel investor and co-author of Restore, The Life-Changing Power of Right-Away Wellness.

Starting with his first big entrepreneurial success, Steve founded Mitos in 2001 with hardly a cent to his name. Without ever raising outside money, Steve built Mitos into a global company in the biotech manufacturing field prior to selling it in 2007 at the age of 29 to a Fortune 500 company. Under Steve’s guidance, Mitos developed several critical innovations and patents which transformed the manufacturing process of biological drugs and vaccines and allowed Mitos to develop a global sales and distribution network.

Following the sale of Mitos, Steve co-founded DreamIt Ventures, a new business accelerator model, and in 2011, Steve started KinderTown, an educational app store for parents with children ages 3-8. In 2013, with almost 400,000 users, Steve sold KinderTown to Demme Learning, and Forbes ranked DreamIt as the #3 accelerator in the world. Companies that have come out of DreamIt include SeatGeek, LevelUp, Meerkat, Notehall, Adaptly, Elevate, Biomeme and over 300 others. From this experience, Steve has worked with hundreds of early stage entrepreneurs to turn their dreams into reality.

Steve has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Penn State and lives in Austin, TX with his wife and their four children.
