About the Climate Corporation

The Climate Corporation is a pioneering startup using large-scale weather data and cloud services to help people and businesses adapt to the problem of climate change. It is the only online service that allows consumers and businesses to protect revenue and control costs from the impact of bad weather, with no unnecessary paperwork, no claims process, no proof-of-loss and no waiting for payment. The Climate Corporation is backed by Nephila Capital, one of the largest weather funds; the company recently also had a $42 million Series B lead by Index, Khosla and Google Ventures.
