Hardware Startup uHoo Secures Seed Funding

uhoouHoo, a Singapore-based hardware startup that detects the quality of indoor air, secured a seed funding of undisclosed amount.

The round – ahead of its series A – was led by Wavemaker Partners with co-investment from Seeds Capital, East Ventures, and angel investors.

The company will use the funds to continue to expand globally.

Co-founded by Dustin Jefferson S. Onghanseng and Brian Lin, uHoo monitors the most number of air quality factors in one device and provides data, insights and recommendations on how to improve it — all in real time. The uHoo device – the size of a coffee mug – works together with the uHoo mobile app and web dashboard.
In 14 months in the market, the device is already used in offices, hospitals, schools and hotels and in multiple industries across more than 10 countries, including clients such as Ascendas, Schiphol airport, Linde, Ricola, Gammon and the government of the Netherlands, among others.

Each unit is available for both consumers and enterprise users at uHoo’s website for US$329 and it ships globally. For Enterprise users, there is an annual subscription fee on top of purchasing the devices for enterprise capabilities.
