Seattle startup that sells air purification tech powered by ultraviolet light raises $2.3M

Founded in 2020, Violett has developed hospital-grade air purification units that maximize UVC exposure using a cyclone pattern to disinfect air in a single pass. Its product is effective against COVID-19 virus particles, according to the company.

“People are now realizing COVID-19 is something we may be living with forever in some capacity, and passive air disinfection solutions might be a required step to get back to a sense of normalcy we all want,” said CEO Branden Doyle. “Customers have been more eager to try our product over time, as the pandemic has lingered on.”

Violett currently has 10 customers that use its products in healthcare settings, schools, fitness centers, and more. The company is launching a new rental business model. It also provides units to in-person events for underrepresented populations in the Seattle area.

With its new round of funding, Violett plans to scale manufacturing operations, seek more opportunities to help vulnerable populations, develop a mobile app, build nanotechnology odor removal, and expand its 7-person team. 

violett seems to be an innovative startup and definitely has potential to grow further. My best wishes to the entire team of violett.
