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. Enter Tomorrow.io. Founded in 2015, Boston-based weather technology company aims to help the aviation industry and other verticals make better business decisions by more accurately predicting the weather through historical, real time, and forecast weather data – globally generating minute-by-minute, weather predictions at near pinpoint accuracy right to the street (or runway) level.
“Aviation is an industry heavily impacted by weather on a day-to-day basis, which made Tomorrow.io a natural investment fit for JetBlue Ventures. Since that time, it has consistently delivered valuable returns to JetBlue by minimizing operational airport disruptions. When it comes to predicting the weather of the future, there will be blue skies ahead.”
—Steve Taub, Head of Investments, JetBlue Ventures
“Both JetBlue Ventures and Tomorrow.io are innovators in the aviation and mobility space. We’re thrilled to be working together to provide next-generation operations tools and weather technology for safer and more efficient skies.”
