All started from one statement: what if your clothing enhanced your daily life and unleashed your potential, regardless of the weather conditions?
The founders getting together
Florian Miguet, then General Manager Asia of Dynafit and Salewa (Oberalp group), Julien Guéritée, thermophysiology PhD working at the French Ministry of Defense, and Pierre Mouette, an IoT specialist, founded Clim8 with the ambition of developing the best thermo-regulating technology for clothing.
All three decide to establish the company in Lyon in France, a historically textile region where the first e-textile talents were emerging.
