What the LICOR and Battery Ventures official has to add

Jesse Feldman, a Battery Ventures general partner, said, “We are excited to add diverse and complementary products from Onset to the LI-COR portfolio. We look forward to seeing the impact of this acquisition on climate change solutions and to the continued success of LI-COR in the environmental monitoring space.”

Tom Reslewic, CEO at LI-COR, further said, “LI-COR solutions measure greenhouse gases in real time for emissions monitoring, agriculture, and environmental protection to provide answers about climate change.
