Join the fun!

We're excited to grow the Climate Tech community in cities across the globe - starting right here in our hometown of New York! 🗽

What started as an 8-person outdoor mid-pandemic dinner has since morphed into a 1,500+ strong and ever-growing group of rockstars trying to change the world. We're looking for volunteers to help us expand our programming into a full roster of community-wide meetups, subject-specific events, mentorship program, site visits, and more.

We aim to be a community resource - built for and by our community. Whether you're a student exploring the field, a professional looking to change careers, or an expert excited to bring your ideas to expand the ecosystem, we would love to have you on board! Share your thoughts with us and we look forward to working with you!
