Stephen Ross and Related support Cornell Tech’s new Urban Tech Hub, which aims to make cities more resilient

With a mission to find innovative solutions for the most pressing problems that our cities face, the new Urban Tech Hub at Cornell Tech’s Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute seeks to make our cities stronger, fairer and more resilient. Last year, the Urban Tech Hub launched with the support of a $15 million gift from Stephen Ross and Related, offering a new 2-year interdisciplinary program in urban tech.
