Thank you, Sophie Purdom and Kim Zou for this great article about Activate, Activate fellowship and the startups including Pheronym.
Ilan Gur, founder, and CEO of Activate, puts it best: “technical ideas aren’t the limiting factor to impacting global change. The binding constraint is the lack of opportunity for an enormous pool of talented scientists to go all-in on commercializing their ideas.”
With more than 100 Activate Fellows over 7 years, Activate supports scientists working across sectors, from energy to ag to defense, to commercialize hard-tech innovations, many of which are climate tech solutions. Over the next five years, Activate plans to expand to 100 new fellows per year, most of whom will focus on climate change.

Join us on October 14, 2021, at 7:00 am PST for a moderated discussion and audience Q+A!
From fully autonomous berry harvesters to plant-based lupini bean protein bars, the startups competing for $3 million in prize money at this year’s Grow-NY Food and Agriculture Competition are bringing revolutionary innovations to the market.
Ten of this year’s finalists have connections to the Cornell community, including: Pheronym (Davis, California): Advised by Pam Marrone ‘78, former staff and Board of Trustees member, Pheronym is using pheromones to control the behavior and development of microscopic roundworms called nematodes, offering a nontoxic path for farmers as they transition away from conventional pesticides.
A Summit Showcase with services for startups and awards ceremony will be held Nov. 16-17 at the Syracuse Oncenter, and available to stream virtually. Keep Reading
