Absorbing himself in the newspapers and news, Marc Koska couldn’t ignore the plight of millions who were suffering from the AIDS virus in Africa. So, at 23, he designed a syringe that breaks once it’s been used. Taking him three minutes to design, Marc battled for 17 years to manufacture, patent and distribute the K1 Auto-Disable.
Persistently fighting against bureaucratic red tape, in 1996 Marc was finally able to co-found Star Syringe and licence the technology around the world. His unshakable patience and his unwavering vision to stop the spread of a killer virus make Marc a truly admirable entrepreneur and speaker.
