About

Air pollution is the single biggest environmental health threat of our time, killing 7 million people and costing the world economy 5 trillion USD per year (WHO). Data-driven decision making remains unfeasible as sensing equipment is expensive, stakeholders lack necessary knowledge to analyse the data and suitable interventions are unknown.

Breeze Technologies provides an environmental intelligence platform: It delivers hyperlocal comprehensive and accurate air quality data from public and private data sources and low-cost sensors, as well as insights based on recent scientific and medical studies and actionable recommendations from a growing, self-learning catalogue of more than 3.500 interventions.

Breeze's platform is deployed in Germany's two largest cities, Berlin and Hamburg, as well as in a growing number of international corporates including Miele and Deutsche Telekom.

The startup was founded in 2015 in Hamburg, Germany. It has been funded through two EU startup innovation programmes, a grant from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, as well as the Google DNI fund. The company has been recognised in multiple national and international competitions as one of the most promising European startups, such as the Hamburg Founder's Award, Germany - Land of Ideas and EU Top 50. Awards include a commendation from the German president and the European parliament. Breeze Technologies is a member of Fraunhofer's Morgenstadt smart city innovation network and collaborates with more than a dozen universities and research institutions in air quality research and development.
