More weather data for better forecasts!

Description


Meteo.Rocks manufactures automated weather stations, designed and manufactured in-house. The stations are fully autonomous, powered by solar energy, and transmit data in real-time. The weather stations are the building blocks of our own private network. We aim at 150 stations to cover the whole region of Bulgaria in the next four years. This will help us make better and more accurate forecasts.

Business Model


Weather forecasting depends on observations, but there is a global shortage of such data. The weather station is our core product that can be sold separately, and serves as a building block of our station network. Real-time and processed weather data are available online. Initially, we expect income from users on the website, as well as direct sale of weather stations. Subsequently, we aim at offering weather consultant services for businesses, and selling archived and forecasted data to organisations who can benefit from it.

Target


Mobile app, full website redesign with additional functionalities will allow us to start our paid subscription service. By cooperating with 5 pilot customers through the installation of weather stations at key locations, we will gain valuable feedback and expand our network, an essential step towards more reliable forecasts. Introducing injection molding and aluminum casting will improve the quality and significantly reduce production time and cost. This will allow us to start with direct sale of weather stations.
