On March 12, 2020, the Ministry of Health confirmed Kenya's first case of COVID-19, triggering a series of lockdowns orders, a curfew and an unforeseen strain on the country's healthcare system. In April, a team of 15 students from Kenyatta University took up the challenge to build one of the country's first locally-made ventilators, promising an MVP in 7 days. Listen to our debut episode of The Innovators, to learn how the team of engineering and medical students raced against time to deliver an MVP, marshalled resources and networks to win regulatory approval for a market-ready product, impress manufacturers, both local and globally with a ventilator that costs a mere fraction of global ventilator prices, and what they want to build next.
