When the Covid-19 virus turned into a pandemic in early 2020, industries faced unprecedented hurdles, as well as opportunities, with a whole different urgency.

Businesses had to come up with new ways of making existing products. Other companies tapped into a completely new demand that arose overnight due to lock-downs or demand for equipment. In just a few months many companies invented more than they otherwise would in a whole year. The crisis has in a short time frame spurred new ways of thinking and changed the time to market.
