Ziv Lautman

Co-founder & Chief Marketing Officer at BreezoMeter

Profile

Ziv Lautman is a Technion graduate and the co-founder and chief marketing officer (CMO) of BreezoMeter — an award winning platform that provides real-time and highly localized air quality data together with health recommendations to more than 50M people around the world. BreezoMeter uses big data analytics to understand air pollution dispersion up to the block resolution, and provides analytics that enable municipalities, cities and businesses to make informed decisions on the wellbeing of its citizens. Winner of the 2014 GEW StartUp Open Global Competition and other awards, BreezoMeter was named as one of the 20 most promising start-ups in the world.

On a worldwide hiking trip in 2008, Ziv witnessed firsthand the environmental degradation present in so many parts of the world. Determined to right the environmental wrongs, he entered the Technion, where he studied Environmental Engineering and received a four-year full scholarship for excellence from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

After receiving his Technion bachelor’s degree summa cum laude and first in his class in 2012, Ziv worked as an engineer at the University of Applied and Environmental Sciences in Bogota, Colombia, planning a solar energy facility.

Ziv earned a Milken Institute Fellowship that allowed him to work among key decision makers at the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection. Toward the end of his fellowship, Ziv received a phone call from a friend, now a business partner, who was buying a house in Haifa, Israel and wanted advice on which part of the city had the least pollution. This question led to the start of BreezoMeter.

Today, Ziv heads BreezoMeter’s North America office in San Francisco.
