This is important because industries and university research labs across the country were being closed down due to the pandemic, and yet the Zen management team sought business opportunities and to maintain a mandate of ‘full steam ahead’ by being deemed an ‘essential’ service. That strategic chess move early on during the pandemic provided Zen the foundation for all of the additional Covid-related news items we’ve had since then (and possibly non-Covid items since we were a company that was still permitted to proceed as per business-as-usual).
