Hi. We’re Noze.
A team of humans teaching machines how to smell.
Since 2015, we’ve been obsessed with a tricky problem with life-changing potential: digital scent recognition. That obsession has led us to creating the world’s first commercially available digital nose. A huge deal for a space that’s been notorious for false starts and crushed hopes. We are now on a mission to bring the sense of smell to devices everywhere, because we know this technology will change the world as we know it.
Adventures in digital olfaction.
The story begins with the idea to digitize the sense of smell by leveraging recent technological advances in material science and artificial intelligence. The seed is planted.
HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PATENT
Learning that NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) had a technology that could push us forward, we went knocking. Soon after, we secured a worldwide exclusive license for the patents.
We started building the first working version of our digital nose and almost immediately received orders for the prototype from two multinational companies on the other side of the world. It wasn't pretty. But it worked.
THE BLURRY PERIOD
We spent most of those two years with our heads down, just focusing on developing our technology. Was it intense? Oh yes. But we sure did get a lot done.
A PATENT OF OUR OWN
We were awarded our first patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for breaking new ground in chemical-sensing systems. For the curious types, it’s USPTO Patent #10386379B1.
RUNNING WITH THE BIG DOGS
Stratuscent (as Noze was called until 2022) was selected by BSH (formerly Bosch Siemens) to partner on developing a smart cooktop solution using the digital sense of smell. This has become an ongoing collaboration, and things are cooking nicely (literally as well as metaphorically).
ALL EYES ON NOZE
We took to the CES stage and showed the world the platform we’d been building over the last five years. That day, the digital nose made its way into the mainstream. You could say we officially stuck our Noze into everyone’s business.
The world suddenly came to a standstill, paralysed by an airborne threat. Realizing that our technology could make a difference, we decided to focus all our effort on releasing our indoor air quality (IAQ) scent library to allow people around the world to monitor the air within their homes to stay informed, healthy, and safe.
NEW NAME, NEW ERA
A long time ago, in a lab far, far away, we got obsessed with the idea of digitizing the sense of smell. We were Stratuscent then. A lot has changed, and with a big series-A in our pocket and even bigger future plans, we chose a bolder, punchier name to match our spirit — becoming Noze.
How we feel about our investors, in three words:
we’re so lucky.
Join team Noze.
We’re building technology to change the world. There’s no way we could do it without a team of curious, brave, original and diverse thinkers.
