The Rise Fund, TPG’s global impact investing platform, has announced a US$100m strategic investment in Climavision, a newly launched weather services and intelligence platform powered by a private network of high-resolution radars, GPS-RO data and proprietary software to vastly improve the timing and accuracy of weather forecasting and to fill low-level gaps in existing weather surveillance.
Climavision was formed out of Enterprise Electronics Corporation (EEC), a commercial supplier of weather radar systems.
