Our Story

Cervest was founded in 2016 by Iggy Bassi, whose previous agribusiness gave him firsthand experience of the impacts of climate volatility – as well as the ability of technology to enhance human decisions and build climate resilience. 

Building a world-class team drawn from Google, Argonne Labs, Just Eat, Microsoft, Amazon, BBC, Shell, Benevolent AI and more, and working in partnership with The Alan Turing Institute, Oxford University and Imperial College, Cervest set about its fundamental, and fundamentally new, endeavour: Climate Intelligence and its application.

Our Founder

“My previous business improved farmer incomes through sustainable yield gains and market access. The business experienced first-hand the impacts of extreme climate events and natural resource volatility. Combined with what I had learned through one of my previous data analytics ventures, this led me to a new idea.
I passionately believe technology can enhance human decisions and transparency in building greater climate resilience. So, I set out to find like-minded people from around the world to make this vision a reality.” — Iggy Bassi
