Violet Gro has been approved for the Colorado Rural Jump Start program, a statewide economic development initiative created to attract primary jobs to rural areas to spur diversification. In Mesa County, where Violet Gro has chosen to establish its Colorado operations, the program is a joint endeavor between the Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade (OEDIT), the Grand Junction Economic Partnership (GJEP) and the local academic partner, Colorado Mesa University (CMU).
As part of the program, Violet Gro will be partnering with CMU on developing and executing joint research efforts, creating internship opportunities for CMU students and facilitating educational initiatives around its agricultural lighting. This includes developing strategies for optimizing plant growth and enhancing plant benefits through their use of patented UV technology in Violet Gro’s products.
