Information is the answer to fight off pollution. This belief led Romain Lacombe and David Lissmyr to launch Plume Labs, a company that would develop innovative products and services to democratize access to information about pollution and make urban air cleaner.
One year later, Plume Labs is now a full-grown Paris-based startup building environmental AI products to help consumers track, predict and reduce their exposure to air pollution.
We are a pluridisciplinary team of 14 and we work hard to turn this vision into reality with the support of a wide range of public and private partners.
Meet the team!
Romain Lacombe is a one-time marathon runner foiled by pollution. Romain is a graduate of Ecole Polytechnique and MIT. From 2011 to 2014, he launched France’s Open Data policy at the French Prime Minister’staskforce Etalab (data.gouv.fr) for open government data. During this period, France, now ranked 3rd in the world, joined the Open Government Partnership, and its President signed the G8 Charter for Open Data.
David Lissmyr has a young son and wishes he could breathe a cleaner air in Paris. David graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and Stanford University. After Silicon Valley, he joined a leading consulting firm to support large industrial groups on strategic topics. He discovered at that time the issue of pollution exposure for professionals, and helped develop data services based on artificial intelligence.
