Violux Raises $1.2M in Seed Funding Round

Sep 24, 2020

Violux , an Irvine, Calif-based creator of smart Ultraviolet (UV) light cleaning technology, raised $1.2m in seed funding round. The round was led by Okapi Venture Partners, and joined by Unlock Ventures and Envoy Ventures. The company, which was also recently accepted into UC Irvine’s Wayfinder venture program, intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach. Founded by Sean Clottu, Andy Aoe and advisor and executive chairman Matt McRae, Violux is the creator of a smart ultraviolet light (UV) cleaning technology which powers products with a focus on contemporary design and smart sensing features and connectivity. Its first product, Luma, is a countertop device that utilizes UVC light technology to kill 99.9% of germs, bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus. Users can place any high-touch household items–including smartphones, remote controls, keys, computers, game controllers, glasses, baby items, credit cards, money, groceries and more–to be safely cleaned and disinfected by Luma. The device proactively reminds users to disinfect items when returning home, tracks usage, provides smart notifications, and provides a comprehensive status of the device. Luma also implements proprietary reactor sensing to ensure users that the device is always working as expected and providing the proper disinfection levels. FinSMEs
