American news channel CNBC has named Israel’s air pollution monitor app, BreezoMeter, among the“20 hottest startups in the world in 2014.”

From a field of more than 600 startups from 38 countries taken into consideration, the CNBC team selected just 20 startups as its top contenders of the year.

“We are in the midst of an entrepreneurial revolution that is spreading to nearly every nook and cranny on the planet. Even countries plagued with political strife or in the midst of a deep recession are seeing a surge in start-up activity,” reads the CNBC site. “These innovators can be found way beyond the borders of Silicon Valley.” 

BreezoMeter, in the words of its founders, is “changing the way people interact with the world, by providing them with the resources needed to make informed choices about what environments they inhabit.”
