Welcome to ClimaCell!

What makes us unique?

We see everything around us as a possible weather sensor, from wireless networks to connected cars. With so many sensors out there, we've built a proprietary big data collection and analysis platform, combined with exclusive weather models. Thanks to that, we provide minute-by-minute, street-by-street forecast, globally.

Why we're here

Everyone has their own weather (horror) story. ClimaCell’s founders experienced the cost of inaccurate forecasts first hand as pilots and special forces veteran. For each, being blindsided by weather was life threatening and enough of a reason to start a company committed to making forecasts something you can actually rely on.
