In this episode…
Good air quality is so critical to life but oftentimes, we take it for granted. Back in 2013 when Ran Korber and his wife were planning on buying a house, they decided that one of their main considerations was having it in an area with the best air quality. To their surprise, there was no reliable data and no accurate way to measure the air quality anywhere. Because of this realization and his desire to protect his family’s health, Ran and his friends, Emil Fisher and Ziv Lautman, decided to create a product that will help address this problem.
They developed very sophisticated algorithms capable of forecasting and monitoring air pollution globally. The result of that project is BreezoMeter. They are now a leading air quality analytics company that offers services worldwide with accurate data and actionable recommendations.
On this episode of Inspired Insider as Dr. Jeremy Weisz talks with Ran Korber of BreezoMeter about how their brand helps people to protect their health. Ran also shares how he survived COVID-19, the personal story behind BreezoMeter, how he convinced a team of experts to work with their company, and why 2020 is his best and most challenging year yet. Stay tuned.

You know, you were saying before we got we’ll talk about, you know, what’s going on in the world. And there’s always something going on in the world right now. You know, if there’s fires in California, there’s, you know, COVID has going on as we’re talking and always a need for air quality. You know, it’s like one of those things, you take it for granted until you don’t have it like actually breathing air. Right. And so, yeah, I’ll talk about what the company did, who founded it. But you mentioned Jeremy, I may be coughing, because I came down, you know, my family and I had COVID. And just talk briefly, because it kind of transitions into why air is important and, and causing respiratory issues and kind of stems from the how, why you started this company in the first place. And you’re actually at risk because of some of the the predispositions you have. So what what was your experience with COVID?
Yeah, so, so we were infected, the my wife was infected from one of our colleagues at work. And and until we found out about him being sick, the entire family was was sick. So first of all, luckily for us, my two kids didn’t had any symptoms. So thanks God for that. My wife had very light symptoms, like she basically had three days of only fevers, she was tired a little bit, but after three days, she was fine. And I on the other hand, I had severe symptoms. That means that for I was sick for almost 10 days. I was it was very hard for me to breed. I literally couldn’t bleed. Like I usually breed. At some point the oxygen level was very low and what kind of risk my my life after the after three days and I have to say this is the worst disease I’ve ever had. I am a healthy man i have i didn’t i don’t think I ever met my personal doctor. I never I basically I’m one of those people that almost never sick. So after three days of very severe symptoms and almost unable to breathe, I can’t get out of bed. My legs hurt all the all my body hurt. I took some action decided that I can’t wait to go to the hospital. And my doctors didn’t tell that it’s severe enough to go to the hospital because the hospitals are full, all over, like in every major city all over the world, partly because of COVID. Because of the winter that is now coming. Hey, so I took action by myself, I rented the oxygen generator. And I also bought an inhalation machine and ventolin ventolin. And I basically treated myself so look like
