This podcast was one that profound impact on what type of design I want to be doing. "Jane Chen is the co-founder and CEO of Embrace Innovations, a social enterprise startup creating technologically innovative products for a global community of mothers and babies. Embrace Innovations recently launched Little Lotus Baby, a new line of baby products using NASA-inspired technology to keep babies at the perfect temperature so they can sleep better. Through a 1:1 model, each product sold helps a baby in a developing country with the Embrace infant warmer. Jane joins Diego and Piper to talk about how the infant warmer came to be, the challenges she's faced, how she has adjusted the business model over time, what surfing has taught her about entrepreneurship and risk, how she stays optimistic, and so much more.
