Tell us about yourself?
Muhammad Bilal – Founder/CEO @BreatheIO, PGP AI/ML from UTA, 10+ Years Full Stack Hardware & Software Engineer, Philosopher, Author of 2 x Books, 3 x Advisor to Startups It all started back in 2015, when we encountered the first happenings of smog in Pakistan.
It was fog at first, the very beauty that dims the street lights by diffusing it making it perfect for night life candid photography, but there was a catch to it. It wreaked of the smell of diesel.
The smell was awkward but it really didn’t bother me. I used to offer voluntary service at the children’s hospital at that time.
Usually we had cases mostly related to stomach, but by the very appearance of this new ghost in our city, it wasn’t much time that cases of throat infection, bronchitis and chest congestion started coming in for children under 6 months of age.
Most Air Purifiers in the market are expensive, we are providing optimal technology and at a lower cost to make it available to more people. For we believe everyone has a right to Breathe clean air.
