Molekule, an air purifier provider, has gained an investment from actress and entrepreneur Maisie Williams, best known for her role in the hit series “Game of Thrones.”
Williams is a long-standing champion for the environment and its impact on wellness, the company said. The investment will allow the company to continue its focus on advancing clean air research as well as help advocate for global clean air awareness and solutions.
“With the dangers of air quality so prevalent in our lives today, there has never been a more important time to protect ourselves against air pollution,” said Williams. “As an early fan and customer of Molekule, I’ve personally experienced the many benefits of its PECO technology. And now as an investor, I’m proud to continue my support in a company that is dedicated to providing access to clean air for everyone.”
Molekule currently has three air purifiers available to consumers— Molekule Air, Air Mini, and Air Mini+, as well as a commercial-grade product available, the Air Pro RX, with FDA 510(k) Class II medical device clearance. PECO technology, which is the underlying core technology of all Molekule devices, is said to be capable of capturing and destroying indoor air pollutants including viruses, bacteria, mold, and VOCs.
“We deeply value and search for partners that believe in the mission for clean air,” said Jaya Rao, CEO and co-founder of Molekule. “I’m thrilled for us to partner with Maisie. Her care for this space and her understanding for how vital the air people breathe is, led to an instant alignment. This investment will enable us to continuously bring the latest advancements in our technology to customers and enable us to expand our air purification solutions for additional industries who are in real need for an effective air purification solution today.”
