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.
