About Monivent

Monivent is a young MedTech company dedicated to improving the emergency care given to newborn babies in need of respiratory support at birth.

The company was founded 2013 by three female students as a result of a common project at the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and was listed on Spotlight Stock Market in May 2020. Monivent has distribution agreements in place in several European markets and recently signed an agreement for distribution in the USA and Canada.
