Shield LA Started out from a visceral need to help our close friends battling in the front lines of the pandemic. One afternoon Matia's posted a news article about hospitals asking the community to help produce PPE. Patricio saw this post and could not sleep that night, he started thinking of processes that would fit a mass production method of creating PPE. Patricio reached out to Matias to begin an electric collaboration that would spark the ideas for the rest of this journey. It was decided that face shields was the best fit for our competency.
