Germ-fighting Orlando tech firm Violet Defense raises another $6M

A disinfection technology firm undergoing a big growth spurt just raised millions of dollars for more hiring and international expansion. 

Orlando-based Violet Defense Group Inc. raised $6 million, according to an amended U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission document filed Sept. 14.

The maker of ultraviolet light systems for disinfection and agriculture has raised at least $20 million since it was founded in 2012, landing customers across the country and growing its staff to 20 employees.
