Nourish Goals

Similar to Isaac Asimov's Laws of Robotics we have our own guidelines ingrained in our process of making an excellent interactive system:

1. Ease of use is our first priority

We strive to make Nourish Goals simple and clear.

2. Flexibility is key - so long as there's no or minimal compromising of #1
3. Maintain visual clarity

We always appreciate feedback. Please let us know your ideas to help us improve! We promise to always listen. Contact Us

Nourish Goals and its parent company Innovha, founded by Lior Haramaty, leverages his vast experience over a multitude of industries. Born and raised in Israel, until immigrating to the United States as an adult, Lior developed a skill for building electronic and mechanical projects as a child, and by the late 1970's at age 13, began his programming career, selling his own software at age 15.

During his five year service at the IDF, he co-founded his first company, VocalTec. The company started with one of the first computer sound cards, continued with many first-off hardware and software products, and in 1995 introduced Internet Phone (or iPhone for short) the first ever Voice Over the Internet (VOIP) product, followed a year later with a NASDAQ IPO. Lior continued innovating in multiple businesses, and in 2015 co-founded ZING Fitness Studios, high-end fitness boutique studios featuring group classes, personal training and other fitness services, including nutrition and meal plan programs.

Nourish Goals packs behind it a sophisticated engine, algorithms and data created and compiled especially for it. The data is processed on our company's servers and presented to you in a simple, easy to use front-end.
