The World Economic Forum announced yesterday it is welcoming a group of 100 new startups into its Technology Pioneers community.
The companies joining the Technology Pioneers community are tech startups still in their early stages of development spanning several sectors, including renewable energy sources, healthcare, and more.
This year’s cohort has representatives from all around the world, among which are Pakistan and Malaysia, represented for the very first time in the community this year.
Some of the startups brought onboard in 2023 have designed cutting-edge technologies that create sustainable fuel alternatives from water (Electriq Global from Israel), remove CO2 from the air using direct air capture or DAC (CarbonCapture, from the US).
Another company among the new 100 Technology Pioneers is Italian-based Energy Dome, which utilizes CO2 for the cost-effective storage of electricity,
Verena Kuhn, Head of Innovator Communities at the World Economic Forum said: “The 2023 cohort of Technology Pioneers is already bringing great changes to industries around the world. Selectees are at the forefront of innovation and disruption needed to help us solve the world’s most pressing issues.”
