Since the pandemic began, Empire Global Ventures has helped bring critical medical innovations and products to the United States and overseas. We have assisted clients to navigate approval at the FDA and EPA, and once approved, we have brought their products and services to state and city governments, as well as the private sector, all of whom sought critical COVID-response solutions.
Little Lives PPE
One of EGV’s founders, Alexandra Stanton, launched Little Lives PPE in 2020, which manufactures medical grade, American-made personal protective equipment for children and adults – at a time when no one else in the US was manufacturing these important products.
Little Lives PPE™ is a New York-based pandemic response company that provides 100% American-made PPE. It makes medical grade face masks and face shields with a commitment to quality that is backed by product testing. These products are manufactured in New York and California. LL’s focus is to serve the PPE needs of corporations, government, schools, unions, nonprofits, sports teams and hospitals. Little Lives PPE™ is a majority Black- and women-owned company, certified by the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
Little Lives PPE was founded by EGV Co-Founder and seasoned executive Alexandra Stanton along with Harvard trained doctors Dr. Gabrielle Page-Wilson and Dr. Samira Brown.
Y2X Life Sciences
EGV has been working with Y2X Life Sciences, which manufactures and distributes a COVID-19 disinfectant that is both effective and safe. This disinfectant has been certified by the EPA to kill coronavirus, by the FDA in eye drops, mouthwash, and wound care, and by the USDA on food and food surfaces. It has been used by Warner Brothers film and TV studios, in the Legends restaurants in Yankee Stadium and Texas Stadium, and by Montefiore Hospital.
American Federation of Teachers
In the early days of the pandemic, many essential organizations desperately needed PPE for their families, members, and employees, but had no way to obtain it, as a result of widespread scarcity. EGV mobilized its extensive Asian contacts to provide PPE to them, ensuring that these first responders and others could remain healthy and safe.
EGV was proud to help provide PPE to the nurses and teachers of the American Federation of Teachers, so that they could safely continue to serve their patients and children under their care.
