Founded in 2016 by Shimon Elkabetz, Rei Goffer, and Itai Zlotnik was then called ClimaCell.

The Boston-based startup improves weather forecasting via a visualization map that displays over 30 different weather and air parameters. The software gives hyper-local, extremely accurate environmental data, as well as historical, real-time, and forecasting data. It is also adapted to the client’s special needs. Different buyers have different value propositions and different solutions.

The company provides its clients with real-time accurate weather data as well as actionable suggestions tailored to their specific needs. Clients include Uber, Ford Motor, Delta Airlines, JetBlue Airways, National Grid, and the U.S. Air Force.

Weather-related losses in the United States are expected to exceed $100 billion in 2020.

The company doesn’t just give raw facts like the temperature or wind speed. It actually provide business insights and action recommendations such as stopping the train, postponing the game, calling in more drivers, and so on, which is critical because most businesses are affected by the weather but do not know how to understand weather data
