Video: construction tech start-up winners

By Andy Brown20 November 2020

Cemex Ventures, Cemex’s Corporate Venture Capital Unit, has unveiled the ten winners of its latest Construction Startup Competition.

The competition aims to identify and foster start-ups to lead the transformation of the construction industry. Almost 700 construction start-ups entered this year, a record number for the competition, now in its fourth year.

After reviewing the applications ten winners have been selected to participate in a Digital Pitchday. Winners will be able to pitch their solutions to a jury composed of top management representatives from CEMEX Ventures, Ferrovial, Hilti, Vinci Group’s Leonard and Nova by Saint-Gobain on December 2. 

In addition, the audience of this digital session will be composed of experts from the construction and investment industry under the framework of the Builtworlds Venture Conference event.

By going digital with the Pitchday, the competition ensures that safety is the top priority for everyone involved during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Out of the ten winners, only selected innovators will be selected to participate in a ’Speed Dating’ round with global industry leaders. There they will have the opportunity to present their projects at the first in-person event that Builtworlds will host during mid-2021, should the situation regarding Covid-19 allow for it.

The construction industry is increasingly embracing new technology. Read more about automation, electric power and BIM in KHL’s construction technology supplements.
