The 36-year-old Taiwanese American Jane Chen is CEO of Embrace Innovations, a social enterprise startup that manufactures the Embrace Infant Warmer. The low-cost device is designed for the 20 million premature and low-weight babies born each year, mainly in developing countries. It costs just one per cent the price of a standard incubator and doesn’t require constant electricity. It is portable, hygienic, and reusable and is being distributed across clinics in India. Pilot projects are also underway in 10 countries.
