New climate tech hub opening in Manhattan
A new crop of climate-adaptation companies is coming to New York City to grow.
“Adapting to climate change needs really to be aware of what’s going on in the field at a local level with genetics but also with data,” said Martin Ducroquet, the co-founder of Sencrop, a company that offers farmers new tools to monitor weather conditions and maximize their yields.
Sencrop is one of dozens of startups setting up shop at the new International ClimateTech Center in SoHo, a partnership between UrbanX — a platform for new companies reimagining city life — and Jerusalem Venture Partners.
“The revival of New York after Covid, and the rise of New York to being an innovative center to take over San Francisco is something that is very interesting for us,” said Erel Margalit, founder and chairman of Jerusalem Venture Partners and Margalit Startup Cities.
