ClimaCell

Micro Weather. Global Coverage.
Every day, companies from industries such as aviation, financial services, insurance, retail, and agriculture, make critical business decisions based on the weather. These decisions are only as good as a forecast itself. Surprisingly, most of today’s weather forecasting models rely on technology from the 20th century, and when applied at the local level, may only have accuracy rates of about 50%. Enter Climacell. The Boston-based weather technology company aims to help the aviation industry and other verticals make better business decisions by more accurately predicting the weather. ClimaCell measures the attenuation of microwaves transmitted between cell towers, generating minute-by-minute, weather predictions at near pinpoint accuracy right to the street (or runway) level. The company was founded in 2015 by a team from the Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Business.

“We’re thrilled to be an investor in ClimaCell, a company that could help to enhance safety and increase operational efficiency for the aviation industry, and others. ClimaCell’s continued technological advancements and customer momentum lead us to believe that when it comes to predicting the weather of the future, there will be nothing but blue skies ahead.”
