With our Series C funding round completed thanks to the support of our wonderful investors, our team at BreezoMeter has been putting the pedal to the metal, with no plans of slowing down.
2 Months Later….
We wanted to take a moment and reflect on the last couple of months to share some of our amazing accomplishments:
BreezoMeter’s Headcount Grows by 70%
Here at BreezoMeter, we know that people and culture are the two most critical aspects for determining a company’s success. With our new funding secured, we have been able to expand upon all existing positions, as well as create new ones that enable us to further enhance our products and help us fulfill our mission.
Over the last two months, we’ve increased our employee capacity by 70%, recruiting more developers, scientists, designers, customer success managers, and a variety of other new hires.
We are elated to have found so many talented and driven people with genuine enthusiasm about our mission (by the way we’re still hiring)!
Weather Industry and Climate & Sustainability Expert Paul Walsh Joins BreezoMeter
Among our new hires is none other than weather industry veteran (and U.S. Air Force veteran) Paul Walsh. As former Vice President of Weather Analytics at The Weather Company and Global Director of Climate and Sustainability at IBM, Paul brings a fountain of knowledge and experience to the table.
In a time of increasingly unpredictable environmental events, Paul’s deep understanding of leveraging weather and climate data for businesses and individuals makes him the perfect fit for our expanding US ‘dream team’.
Paul joins BreezoMeter as our new Head of Business Development in North America.
Revolutionary New Fire & Smoke Reporting Technology
Launched just in time for 2021’s devastating fire season, our new live fire and smoke pollution tracking technology (Wildfire Tracker) makes information freely available to the public, enabling all impacted individuals to maintain their safety and protect their health.
New Fire Intelligence Drives New Use Cases
The innovative technology behind our Wildfire Tracker enables new use cases across a variety of industries:
Smart Mobility - safer route planning and reduced fire-related delays.
Healthcare - real-time protection for at-risk patients, reducing economic and health impact.
Insurance - enhanced risk assessments and prevention for people and property.
Air Purification - preemptive alerts updating users on active fire status and enabling proactive air quality protection.

Discussing Health-focused Environmental Insights Across The Web
Recruiting new team members with scientific and industry expertise, along with the launch of our innovative wildfire tracking technology, has functioned to generate some notable media buzz these past few months.
Paul Walsh, our new Head of Business Development, joined Cheddar News recently to discuss how climate change continues intensifying extreme weather events and future implications, highlighting the need for highly accurate environmental intelligence solutions.
I was also interviewed by Cheddar this August to speak about completing the global demand for accurate environmental data and different business use cases for our personalized environmental analytics and health-focused insights.
Paul and I also appeared on the Weather Geeks podcast recently. They discussed the alarming global air pollution reality and how BreezoMeter’s innovative climate tech solution produces actionable health-focused environmental insights at a granular level previously thought impossible.
