Dr. Jay Feldman Stresses on the Importance of Entrepreneurs Giving Back to Society

Entrepreneurs thrive on opportunities, but for opportunities to flourish, you need the right conditions. A healthy and positive society provides those conditions, and that’s why truly successful people believe in putting back into a system that makes personal success possible.

Take Dr. Jay Feldman, for example. Helping people and working for the greater good is in the 28-year-old South Florida native’s blood. From an early age, he wanted to be an asset to a society he felt had provided so much for himself and his family. He decided that becoming a doctor and help other people live long, and healthy lives was his true calling.

After leaving the University of Florida with a BS in Biological Science in 2014, Dr. Feldman studied for a Medical Degree at New York’s Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. Four years of medical school had been a long, hard haul, but in Dr. Feldman’s own words, “I chose medicine because I wanted to do something selfless with my career. I wanted to make the world a better place.”

However, fate often has an entirely separate plan for us compared to the one we originally envisaged. It was no different with Dr. Feldman.

Throughout medical school, Dr. Feldman was also concentrating on his other passion – business. His marketing agency, Instelite, was founded during this period, and it has since turned into something of an Instagram empire, built around the charismatic doctor’s upbeat and philanthropic posts.

Shortly after graduating medical school and starting his formal training as a new doctor, he was left with a decision to make. Dr. Feldman recalls that question pretty much answered itself. He explained, “I quickly realized that the most effective way for me to help the most people was through my business expertise.”

The die was cast, and his fate sealed. By the time 2020 rolled round, Dr. Feldman had already earned himself a reputation as an entrepreneur to watch out for. His determination to give back and make a better, fairer society for all is evident in the projects which have garnered him recognition.

REX Fitness, for instance, is on a mission to create an affordable yet portable home gym that is accessible to all members of society. Dr. Feldman believes fitness is the key to good health and that nobody should be excluded from its pursuit due to the lack of disposable income.

Likewise, his recently founded non-profit, Food Equality Corporation, plans to help increase access to quality food items for underserved communities.

Dr. Feldman explains, “Food inequality is one of the root causes of health inequality. It creates chronic diseases at an early age in people from disadvantaged communities, and my ambition is to change that.”

No man is an island, and we all need to be a part of a community to thrive. Dr. Feldman believes that for an entrepreneur to succeed truly, society must flourish alongside them. And only a fool would argue against that.

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
