The invitation comes as part of the Microsoft GrowthX Accelerator program, where Nearthlab will join a select group of distinguished startups to share its expertise on a global stage.

The UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP, draws leaders and advocates together to tackle urgent environmental issues.

The recognition has not only cemented Nearthlab’s position as a leader in autonomous drone technology but also fostered partnerships with prominent equipment manufacturers.

“Acceptance into the program gives us a chance to cultivate our client base and develop unique applications for our solution,” said Jay Choi, CEO and co-founder. “Now branded with Microsoft’s seal of approval, our technology is poised to pioneer the future of asset inspections across the renewable energy sector.”

This announcement follows Nearthlab’s standout performance at GITEX, a distinguished ICT conference, where the company demonstrated its technological prowess as a semi-finalist in the Supernova Challenge pitch contest. The upcoming showcase at COP28 marks another significant stride, emphasizing Nearthlab’s unwavering commitment to advancing sustainable practices.
