For ClimateTech

For ClimateTech is a global community of innovators, entrepreneurs, corporate partners, and investors uniting to elevate ClimateTech founders in order to move the needle on the climate crisis in a positive direction. For ClimateTech recruits ClimateTech innovators from all over the world who are ready to use New York's rich ecosystem to get their products to market faster, and scale the growth of their business over time. The initiative is administered by SecondMuse and NextCorps and features two inaugural programs: Venture For ClimateTech helps innovators at earlier stages jumpstart their ClimateTech ideas, teams, and companies. Scale For ClimateTech provides growth-stage innovators with the resources, connections, and access to funding to refine their prototype into a design that's easy to manufacture and mass produce.
