Poncho
New York, NY
http://www.poncho.is/

Poncho creates personalized weather forecasts tailored to user routines and delivered by email, text message, apps and notifications, and now bot interaction via Facebook Messenger or Slack. Based on a quick survey of wake-up time, morning commute and allergy and hair concerns, users immediately begin receiving two witty weather updates daily. Based in New York City as part of betaworks, Poncho puts boring meteorology into an easy-to-understand and fun message, crafted by a team of top-notch writers. It's like being pals with your local weatherman, if he were a cat from Brooklyn.
