Build It. They'll Come.

Melbourne-based medical device entrepreneur Jefferson Harcourt talks of the heroic collaboration going on right now between normal business competitors, to build from scratch and then deliver 2,000 invasive breathing Ventilators: new, much-needed "weapons" in the frontline fight against COVID-19, which will contribute to the Federal Government's National Medical Stockpile.

But what's amazing about this extraordinary effort by several Aussie high-tech manufacturers, is that this entire project, from concept to complete execution, is taking just a few months!

Not only will these ventilators better protect Australians, but possibly our Pacific neighbours too. Not bad for a tech innovator who started his advanced engineering company while still a uni student, 2 decades ago.
