Reducing infant mortality rates by keeping hundreds of thousands of low-birth-weight and premature infants warm.

Embrace Innovations is a social enterprise that develops disruptive healthcare technologies focused on reducing infant and maternal deaths in emerging markets. Embrace’s first product—the Embrace Nest—is an infant warmer designed to regulate the temperature of vulnerable low-birth-weight and premature infants, improving likelihood of survival. Since the launch of their initial product, Embrace Innovations have added additional products: Embrace Care, an electricity-free infant warmer suitable for homes and hospitals, and Little Lotus, the first consumer line of products. The Embrace infant warmers are estimated to have saved over 300,000 babies to date across 22 countries. Embrace Innovations have received recognition from The Economist, TED, and the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, and are working toward a goal of helping one million infants in need.
