Disrupting disinfection & getting smart about getting clean (Eli Harris)

Episode #90 of The Impactors Podcast features #Impactor Eli Harris, President & Co-Founder of R-Zero.

Eli Harris may be young, but don’t underestimate him. Driven by an unwavering work ethic and desire to change the world for the better, he’s worked for leading hi-tech companies around the world and launched two successful startups — all before his 30th birthday. Now as president and co-founder of R- Zero, he’s taking on his most ambitious challenge yet: tackling the transmission of pathogens in the COVID-19 era and beyond. 

A Santa Barbara native, Eli moved to Beijing on a Fulbright Scholarship after graduating from Phi Beta Kappa from Amherst College. While his studies in China quickly led to positions at respected tech firms like FLIR Systems and DJI Technology, Eli had bigger plans. In 2016, he co-founded his first startup — a pioneering portable energy storage company called EcoFlow. After a $25M acquisition deal fell through, Eli eventually sold his stake and was left unsure of his next move. Then the pandemic hit. 

Sensing an opportunity to save lives while revolutionizing the $20B+ infection prevention industry, he stepped away from his role as CEO at Ecoflow and joined forces with two of his mentors to found R-Zero. Their suite of radically affordable, hospital-grade disinfection solutions immediately made waves and headlines. In less than six months since their founding, they’ve already booked $5M in sales, secured the backing of top venture capital firms, and shipped thousands of life-saving products to small businesses across the country — and if Eli has his way, they’re just getting started.
