PBS Newshour features VentureWell and Young Inventors
September 9, 2016

PBS Newshour recently produced a segment on The Lemelson Foundation’s long-time grantee VentureWell and their efforts to advance the work of young inventor entrepreneurs.

The PBS segment highlighted the work of several E-Teams, and dug deep into the efforts of Kinnos, a team from Columbia University that’s improving infectious disease decontamination to save the lives of healthcare workers and first responders.

The segment underscores the critical role that young inventors can play in tackling the world’s most pressing problems, and the unique work of VentureWell to support inventor entrepreneurs through their triumphs and challenges. The young inventors featured in the PBS story are the true embodiment of Jerry Lemelson’s legacy, and they continue to inspire the Foundation’s daily work.
