ENYA co-invested with SOS Ventures in September 2013 to provide early stage funding to Vital Vio. Vital Vio has developed an LED lighting technology that can be used in the health care and food services industries to kill bacteria and other air borne pathogens. The company is currently finalizing a prototype for market in early2014. It is anticipated that the technology will become a commonly accepted device in medical waiting rooms, doctors offices, patent rooms, operating rooms and other locations in health care facilities where the incidence of infection is high. Vital Vio recently received notice that it would receive a grant from NYSERDA to continue its commercialization activities.
