About this event

Russell Troy Witthuhn, an aspiring inventor and Electronic and Software Engineer along with his wife Chantal share their story on how they successfully established iWeathar an internet based weather station company in which they were able to finance the production and design themselves without the assistance of investors or partnerships.

***BACKGROUND***

The Company was established 13 years ago by the owner Russell Troy Witthuhn, an aspiring inventor and Electronic and Software Engineer and is being run as an efficient and dynamic one-man operation, with the assistance and support of his wife, Chantal.

In the past Russell made many attempts inventing, producing and manufacturing unique products and finally a break-through came in 2006 when he designed a cost effective Internet based weather station with live monitoring. The motivation behind the product design was because Russell, a paragliding pilot, could not afford the cost of a automated weather station. Other pilots started using the online system and became aware of its benefits which generated much interest thereby becoming a commercially viable product.

It has been a slow journey for the Witthuhn’s but with their perseverance and determination they were successfully able to build a self-sustaining company which now sees their weather stations operating in South Africa, United Kingdom, India, Mozambique, Swaziland, Namibia, France, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Austria and Austria.
