The strongest business leaders in the COVID-19 era might be startup companies

nvestors and leadership from tech and startup companies are stepping up during the coronavirus pandemic by funding treatment and vaccine research, manufacturing protective gear for healthcare workers, and distributing essential goods and/or services. As the healthcare system is strained by effects of COVID-19, production, distribution, and funding channels are all experiencing major disruptions. Help is coming from Silicon Valley where startups thrive on flexibility, eager investors, and a willingness to create change. Startups are fast-moving and able to make production changes where larger companies lag. Their contributions can help make all the difference when time is precious in terms of saving lives. Logistics startup, Flexport is collecting donations to help cover shipping and sourcing costs for essential medical supplies in San Francisco. Other companies with 3D printing capabilities are producing ventilator parts, medical face shields, and respirator valves. Materialise is one such company creating 3D printed hands-free door openers.
