The Business of Saving Lives: Innovation, Implementation and Scale-up with Jane Chen
Jane Chen—Co-founder and CEO, Embrace Innovations; Fellow, TED; Fellow, Echoing Green
Chen and her team wanted to solve a problem: how to save premature and low-birth-weight babies living in the developing world without access to incubators. From the design phase of the life-saving technology to its adoption and distribution stage, Chen explains how the Embrace Infant Warmer is helping babies and their mothers in countries including India, China, Somalia, Zambia, Uganda, Mexico, Guatemala and soon Afghanistan.
