Startups To Watch
We identified 9 startups developing sanitation solutions that could reduce contamination risks and reassure consumers as businesses reopen.
As businesses start reopening in select regions, consumers are still unlikely to immediately flock back to malls or restaurants after months of social distancing.
A recent survey by Datassential found that 52% of US consumers would not feel comfortable eating at a restaurant once social distancing measures were eased. This number reached 55% for staying at a hotel and 49% for going out to do non-essential shopping.
The same survey found that regular and visible sanitation would help consumers feel safe going back to restaurants.
