Urban Future Summit 2022
The Urban Future Summit is the culmination of the Urban Future Prize Competition. This annual competition, hosted by the Urban Future Lab and sponsored by The New York Community Trust and MUFG, seeks to find up-and-coming climatetech startups and to award two $50k non-dilutive prizes. At this year’s Summit, we will announce the 2022 finalists and winners, feature a retrospective showcase of a select group of Urban Future Prize winners and finalists from the last six years and highlight our work with Nos Quedamos, a Bronx-based Climate Justice organization.
Join us in-person on October 20, at the Building Energy Exchange in New York City. Mix and mingle with climate innovators, investors, and activists, and learn more about what’s new in the climatetech startup ecosystem here in NYC.
With special thanks to The New York Community Trust, and MUFG Union Bank, supported by NYSERDA and NYU Tandon School of Engineering, we hope you will join us at the Urban Future Summit on October 20 to celebrate the vital work of innovating to address climate change.
