Beyond Weather's AI-driven long-range weather forecasting bags €250k from LUMO Labs

LUMO Labs today announced an investment of €250,000 in Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam spin-out Beyond Weather to further develop its AI technology for long-range weather and impact forecasting. 

Based in Utrecht, Beyond Weather leverages extensive climate expertise and AI to create targeted long-range forecasts with lead times of two weeks up to 6 months ahead

Jannes van Ingen, CEO of Beyond Weather, stated:

“Beyond Weather originated from a dedicated team of climate scientists at VU Amsterdam. 

We care about the risks of climate changeand we work passionately every day to bring predictability and actionability to society. We are immensely excited to have LUMO Labs on our side in this journey.”

Beyond Weather's AI-driven models offer timely, interpretable and actionable forecasts that enable the energy and agricultural sectors to anticipate high-risk weather events further in advance than ever before. 

These predictive capabilities allow businesses to effectively manage risks, reduce costs, and increase profitability by pre-emptively addressing potential impacts such as crop damage. 

In addition, Beyond Weather will be providing actionable data to aid humanitarian efforts in the already heavily climate-hit Global South.

“Although we must all press on with our efforts to stop and reverse climate change, there is no denying that amid escalating climate change-induced weather events, today and in the foreseeable future, accurate forecasts are crucial,” says Andy Lurling, Founding Partner of LUMO Labs. 

“Our investment will accelerate the implementation of Beyond Weather's pioneering AI solutions, strengthening global weather prediction and enhancing climate resilience.”
