Molekule, a San Francisco, California-based science and clean technology company, raised $3.25m in seed funding.
The round was led by SoftTech VC, Crosslink Capital and CSC Upshot.
The company is also funded by additional grants from the U.S. E.P.A.
Founded in 2014 by Dilip Goswami, CEO, Molekule has introduced a molecular air purifier which leverages patented technology that eliminates the full spectrum of indoor pollutants, breaking them down on a molecular level. Molekule – which is designed to integrate into today’s living environments – can be connected to Wi-Fi for the device to become smarter over time and respond to the individual needs of people’s household. The companion iOS app allows users to control the device remotely and manage filter replacements.
A limited quantity of Molekule air purifiers will be available for pre-order at a special price of $499 USD with one year of filters free. Molekule will retail for $799 USD and ship in early 2017.
