Identifying and acting on sources of pollution, sustainably
We are moved by a common interest in the air we breathe
and in the environment in which we raise our children
Gathering skills from different cities, we designed
the Air Quality Assessment Platform
for Businesses and Governments
Saketaram is the founder of meo, focusing on helping the community understand the air we breathe and providing actionable advice toward cleaner air. Saketaram started this venture five years ago, when his 18-month-old boy developed respiratory complications. The ordeal led him to understand that existing treatment – antibiotics and other drugs – can only mask symptoms, not solve the origins of the ever-growing problem.
With a group of multi skilled friends, they designed a platform to help identify and understand the source of pollution to drive action towards sustainable solutions.
Born in South America to Indian parents and bred in France, Saketaram is an electrical engineer specialised in robotics and signal processing.
