Molekule’s air purification solutions will now be available to Indian consumers through Amazon.in. This is Molekule’s first commercial entry into India. The company also entered the Japan market.
The company’s initial offering to the Indian market through Amazon will be its Air Mini device, along with replacement filters.
“This is an important time for Molekule to enter the Indian market, and one could not ask for better partners than Amazon.in terms of making it happen,” said Yogi Goswami, co-founder, chief scientist of Molekule. “There is a great need for innovative technology that can help provide an added layer of protection from airborne pollutants— even inside one’s home or business— and solutions like ours do just that, by not just filtering the air, but by destroying harmful pollutants within it. Expanding our distribution footprint in India means that more people can breathe clean air and we are excited to bring this technology to the people of India.”
In addition, Molekule has closed a partnership agreement with Sourcenext, a market maker for brands in Japan including software, hardware and IoT products. Sourcenext has also invested $10 million into the company. The funds will be used for growth
“We are deeply honored to have Sourcenext as both an investor and distributor in Japan,” said Jaya Rao, CEO of Molekule. “They sit at the intersection of hardware and software solutions, which suits Molekule well. As Japan is the third largest economy in the world, we are excited to bring revolutionary air purification technology to the local market and further our mission of providing clean air for all.”
Sourcenext will initially launch Molekule’s Air Mini+, which boasts enhanced particle sensing and auto protect mode, with additional products to follow.
