When COVID-19 began to lock the world down, our next guest realized he was in a unique position to save lives and help revolutionize the enormous infection prevention industry. 

Grant Morgan, CEO of R-Zero, joins us to discuss how he leveraged his proven entrepreneurial track record and an extensive background in designing medical devices and IoT-enabled hardware to create hospital-grade biosafety technologies at a fraction of the cost. 

While together, Grant shares why he became so passionate in creating a UV light tower capable of destroying 99.99% of pathogens in a room in minutes while also making it commercially available to the masses. 

Additionally, Grant outlines the future for R-Zero and the infection prevention industry well beyond the pandemic. 

Join us for this illuminating conversation as we continue to work together to move the health of our nation forward. Let’s go! 

Episode Highlights:

  • How Grant’s previous entrepreneurial ventures helped him launch R-Zero
  • The strategy the R-Zero team used to democratize access to biosafety technologies
  • Managing explosive growth during the pandemic while planning for the long-term
  • Personal stories of positive impact and success Grant’s customers are experiencing
  • How you can get involved in the R-Zero movement

About our Guest: 

While most of us were busy hoarding toilet paper or binge-watching Netflix,

Grant Morgan was working on a plan to change the world. As co-founder and CEO of R-Zero, he's democratizing access to hospital-grade biosafety technologies, restoring trust in our common spaces and the organizations that operate them, and helping establish a new standard for public health in the COVID-19 era and beyond.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Grant realized he was in a unique position to save lives — and to revolutionize the $200B+ infection prevention industry. With a proven entrepreneurial track record and an extensive background designing medical devices and IoT enabled hardware, his skillset was tailor-made to meet the moment.

Soon, he and a small team were working day and night to reverse-engineer the hi- tech biosafety equipment used in hospitals across the country, searching for ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Less than six months later, his newly- founded company shipped its first product — a portable UV light tower capable of destroying 99.99% of pathogens in a room in minutes, and at a fraction of the cost of commercially-available alternatives.

Since then, R-Zero’s trajectory has been meteoric. Grant has assembled an all-star team featuring seven former founders or CEOs, booked $5M in sales in 3 short months since [shipping the first product, and secured the backing of top venture capital firms and cross-industry thought-leaders. Today, R-Zero’s products are in use in thousands of classrooms, restaurants, and small businesses, helping to pave the way to a new normal — one that’s healthier and safer than ever before.
