San Francisco, 21 June 2023 – ClimateAi, the San Francisco-based company that aims to climate-proof the global economy, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”. Borne out of Stanford University, the startup’s platform applies AI to climate risk modelling to provide short and long-term insights into weather and climate impact, helping businesses identify the actions needed today to adapt to the climate change disruptions of tomorrow, as well as new opportunities that may arise as a result.

The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early-stage companies that are at the forefront of new technologies and innovation and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.

“We’re excited to welcome ClimateAi to our 2023 cohort of Technology Pioneers,” said Verena Kuhn, Head of Innovator Communities at the World Economic Forum. “ClimateAi and its fellow pioneers are at the forefront of innovation and disruption needed to help us solve the world’s most pressing issues. We look forward to their contribution to the Forum’s content work that brings together public and private sector to tackle these global issues.”

As a Technology Pioneer, ClimateAi CEO Himanshu Gupta will be invited to engage with the World Economic Forum, working with global leaders to help address key industry and societal issues. Technology Pioneers will also be invited to join Forum events and discussions throughout the year, bringing together leading stakeholders from the public and private sector.

“Recognition from the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer is a testament to the collective effort and innovation of our entire team,” said Gupta. “We are looking forward to engaging in the Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, as we continue to collaborate with other global leaders in the field and drive new value for our customers.”

This year’s Technology Pioneer cohort includes startups from 31 economies, with a third led by a woman chief executive. China has the second highest representation with 12 Technology Pioneers, behind US with 29 companies.
