Startup Series: Runwise My Climate Journey

    • Business

Today's guest is Lee Hoffman, Co-Founder & COO of Runwise.

Lee Hoffman is the Co-Founder and COO of Runwise. Over the past 18 years, Lee has co-founded and managed technology for companies as diverse as Time Warner, Razorfish Studios, and Terabolic, Inc. Most recently, Lee co-founded and served as CEO of Veri, a venture-backed NY mobile startup that in 2018 was acquired by The Knot.

Runwise is the first end-to-end boiler and heating system management platform. The company combines a proprietary heat computer and sensor network, machine learning systems, and a team of trained boiler experts to reduce fuel consumption by an average of 20-25% across over 2000 buildings in New York City. Runwise's customers include some of the smallest owners, all the way up to the biggest, including Lefrak, Related, Fairstead, Columbia University, and Lemle & Wolff. Heat Watch's platform is the only end-to-end boiler monitoring and management system that saves owners money, increases tenant comfort, and radically lowers carbon output across New York City.

In this episode, Lee walks me through Runwise's charter, the problem they are tackling, and how commercial buildings impact the climate. We also dive into Runwise's solution, how the company supports its customers, and how policy and government mandates affect its success. For those interested in the intersection of infrastructure and climate, this is a must-listen.

Enjoy the show!
