Israeli startup BreezoMeter delivers street-level air quality, pollen, pollutants and fire data to consumers through connected devices in more than 100 countries. The company just closed a $30 million Series C funding round led by Fortissimo Capital, an Israeli private equity investment group. The new funding brings BreezoMeter’s total funding to date to $45 million.

Founded in 2014 by CEO Ran Korber and CTO Emil Fisher, BreezoMeter calls itself the go-to partner for integrating air quality and pollen data into products, technologies, and apps. The company says that a wide range of industries, such as smart home, digital healthcare, fitness, cosmetics, automotive, and more, can easily integrate environmental information using its API.

BreezoMeter states that the funding comes just as the company enters the advanced stages of developing its new monitoring, forecasting and alert systems for environmental hazards, such as air pollution, pollen and fires. BreezoMeter combines data from multiple sources, including more than 47,000 sensors worldwide, meteorological data and satellites that track weather, fire and sandstorm events, as well as live traffic information. It detects 12 species of pollen and 34 different pollutants, allowing it to forecast air pollution up to 96 hours and allergens three days ahead of time. BreezoMeter uses AI and machine learning to gather this intelligence in real time and deliver it to consumers at street-level acuity of about 5 meters or roughly 17 feet.

Demand for our air quality intelligence has only grown since the pandemic shone a spotlight on respiratory wellness and now, hundreds of millions of people use the information BreezoMeter provides daily,” said Ran Korber, CEO at BreezoMeter. “Our models predict environmental hazards, like pollen and forest fires, which have a negative impact on respiratory health. We use this data to deliver real-time recommendations so people can avoid these dangers. With this new round of funding, we have more resources to refine and scale our three-part model: data infrastructure, technology and delivery to consumers through connected devices and experiences. We are additionally developing new products that give people more control over their health.”

“We’re realizing our vision thanks to our top-tier engineers and scientists, who are the best minds in their fields,” added Emil Fisher, BreezoMeter’s co-founder and CTO. “With the backing of highly professional venture capitalists, there is infinite potential for both social and economic impact. We are currently recruiting new employees who have a burning desire to join our mission and improve the health of billions of people all over the world.”
