Pollution monitoring app BreezoMeter recently won the Startup Open contest in Israel and joined the list of the World’s Top 50 Most Promising Startups, also known as the GEW50.

The BreezoMeter app was invented to make air pollution visible and get people to demand cleaner air. Using real time big data analysis, the app shows air quality information at street level resolution.

“A real victory for BreezoMeter will be when people check air quality at their location like they check the weather. BreezoMeter just launched its wearable compatible App to enable users to monitor air quality around them in real time. And we are in discussions with major companies and other vertical markets to integrate BreezoMeter technology into their offerings,” say Ran Korber (CEO) and Emil Fisher (CTO).

The Startup Open contest was a featured event of Global Entrepreneurship Week, an international competition that recognizes startups with high-growth potential.

“This competition promotes creative and innovative ideas in a variety of areas and contributes to empowering,” says Noam Band, board member Global Entrepreneurship Week IL.
