In 2009, I witnessed what we all fear. A global, multi-billion dollar company shelved a technology that was positively impacting people’s lives and the environment, to protect their profits. It spurred me to find a new way to produce the technology. Persistence coupled with a talented team paid off with an even better one.
When you start from scratch, with only barricades in your sight, the only thing you have is your vision, a vision that you hope one day, others will see as well. Oct 12th, 2019 was one of these days. At an event in Dallas, I was approached by one of my investor’s friends who said, "I hear you have a product that kills germs in hospitals a lot faster than what they currently use. Do you know why people are dying from infections?" I replied, "Yes, we do."
A dear friend of his, a 45-year-old, healthy woman, had recently gone into a local hospital for a simple ankle procedure, acquired a staph infection, and passed away 10 days later. We chatted for a while and after the event I received this message.
