VIVIDGRO® ANNOUNCES NEW DIRECTOR AND SENIOR AGRONOMIST

EMIL RADKOV BRINGS PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF INDUSTRY INNOVATION TO VIVIDGRO

EMIL RADKOV JOINS VIVIDGRO AS DIRECTOR AND SENIOR AGRONOMIST

May 23, 2017  | West Warwick, RI Lighting Science® today announced the appointment of noted horticultural and SSL technology expert Emil Radkov as Senior Agronomist and Director of VividGro, a division of Lighting Science Group focused on advanced agricultural and horticultural LED solutions. Lighting Science’s mission is to bring life-changing products in human health, agriculture, and infrastructure to market. Their extensive technology and intellectual property portfolio includes nearly 400 LED technology patents, from biological circadian LED technology solutions to VividGro’s expanding range of products for cannabis and indoor agriculture. Radkov himself has authored over 40 technology patents on the subject of LED technology and horticultural innovation, making his addition to the company’s leadership a clear reinforcement of VividGro’s commitment to continually pushing the industry forward.

“It’s thrilling to join a company that prioritizes scientific innovation as part of their mission,” said Radkov. “It is my hope that my particular experience in driving LED grow-light technology will aid in the development of even greater products while accelerating consumer awareness of sustainable, future-conscious options in the agricultural and horticultural industries around the world.”

Radkov comes to VividGro following positions at Soraa, Dow Corning and Illumitex. An innovative expert with proven ability of creating new IP for LED technology, Radkov has set industry records for performance and light quality. His key areas of expertise include extensive knowledge of LED phosphors and encapsulants, spectral design for general and specialty lighting applications, reliability and SSL standards.

Lighting Science has long been investing in the research and development of urban agriculture, including working with NASA, Harvard University and the U.S. Scientific Research Station at the South Pole to establish indoor food production. Since launching VividGro in 2014, Lighting Science’s products have consistently been one of the most popular brands in cannabis and large-scale indoor farming production. LSG was one of the first LED companies to offer an energy efficient alternative to high pressure sodium (HPS) lighting. Their patented VividGro LED lamp is proven to increase yields by up to 20% while using 45% less energy. In addition, unlike many other LED grow solutions, VividGro differentiates itself by creating a “white light” working environment for grow house employees. These commercial LED solutions are highly adaptable to both urban and agricultural environments, including greenhouses of any scale.

The VividGro division will be led by recently-appointed President David Friedman and Radkov, and supported by a team of engineers, scientists and sales and marketing executives who all have extensive LED lighting and cannabis industry experience.

Lighting Science’s Fred Maxik and GoodNight® Lamp Featured in Interview with WPHL at LightFair 2017

Lightbulb that can give you a better night’s sleep showcased in Philly

May 11, 2017 by MATT ALBA WPHL

PHILADELPHIA, PA — At this year’s 2017 Lightfair conference, held in Philly this week, the company Lighting Science was showing off a lightbulb that they say helps you get a better night’s sleep.

It was the world’s largest annual commercial lighting trade show and conference, and the company Lighting Science had their special bulbs on display.

The bulbs costs around $ 20 and they’re designing to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Fred Maxik is the Chief Technology Officer and founder of the company. Maxik explained, “About 20 years ago we discovered the circadian receptors in the eye; these gangly receptors that trigger our body and tell our body to wake up during the day.”

Maxik says he spent decades working with NASA and initially developed the Good Night Biological LED lamp and bulb for astronauts on the international space station, to regulate their body’s natural circadian rhythm, which are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow the body’s 24-hour clock.

Because the astronauts were circling the earth, their lighting and sleep patterns were all out of sync. But with the special lights it helped them get to sleep, and to be more attentive once they woke up.

Maxik says it works by filtering out blue light, which suppresses melatonin production.

You can buy them online from Amazon or at Target.

Maxik told PHL17, “So what we’ve done with these lights is we have reengineered that light spectrum and we’ve reengineered it so it doesn’t tell our bodies to wake up. So when we go to bed and we turn these on before we go to bed, and when we do our activities, our body is preparing to go to sleep. Our bodies become invested and are starting to secrete melatonin, versus what it’s going to interfere with normally.”

All you need to do is use the 60 watt light in your bedroom, or maybe your bathroom, for 30 to 90 minutes while reading or getting ready for bed.

Maxik said, “If we have the right light that is stimulating us, that is waking up, and that is keeping us alert; it’s a wonderful use for schools, hospitals, industrial applications. Any place we don’t want to have errors being made, any place we want to be really attentive, any place we want to study and be able to learn and listen…it’s very applicable.”

VIVIDGRO® ANNOUNCES DAVID FRIEDMAN AS NEW PRESIDENT

 INDUSTRY VETERAN TO LEAD LIGHTING SCIENCE® HORTICULTURE DIVISION 

Industry Veteran David Friedman Joins Lighting Science as President of VividGro.

May 15, 2017  | West Warwick, RI – Lighting Science announces the appointment of David Friedman as President of VividGro®, the horticultural division of Lighting Science Group Corporation, a leader in advanced applications of LED technology. Lighting Science’s mission is to bring life-changing products in human health, agriculture, and infrastructure to market. Their extensive technology and intellectual property portfolio includes nearly 400 LED technology patents, from biological circadian LED technology solutions to VividGro’s expanding range of products for cannabis and indoor agriculture.

Friedman is no stranger to the cannabis industry. An industry veteran and experienced venture capitalist, he founded Panther Funds in 2014, which has invested in 20 cannabis companies. He is also the former CEO of MJIC, which was initially a venture fund for the cannabis space.

MJIC is expected to IPO on the ASX in August of 2017. His background also includes 25 years as an investment and operating executive in venture capital, mergers & acquisitions and corporate finance.

“It’s a privilege to be able to lead such an experienced and accomplished team,” said Friedman. “The years of research and development, strong investment partners and product acceptance in the market are unique in the nascent cannabis space. The commitment by LSGC to dedicate these resources to the VividGro division validates the tremendous opportunity our industry represents.”

Lighting Science has long been investing in the research and development of urban agriculture, including working with NASA for almost a decade and the U.S. Scientific Research Station to establish indoor food production at the South Pole. Since establishing VividGro in 2014, LSG’s offerings have remained one of the most popular products in cannabis and large-scale indoor farming production. Lighting Science was one of the first LED companies to offer an energy efficient alternative to high pressure sodium (HPS) lighting.
