March 16, 2022 – CEMEX Ventures has opened the call for the 6th edition of the Construction Startup Competition.
This global challenge is open to start-ups (in their early stage up to commercialization phase) who have developed “innovative solutions that help solve the industry’s main challenges”, which have been grouped under four categories:
• Green construction
• Enhanced productivity
• Construction’s supply chain
• Construction future is now
The competition serves as a shortcut for all entrepreneurs who wish to knock on the doors of potential business partners that can help develop their solutions, explains CEMEX.
“Participants can expect to engage with any of the host companies even before the competition comes to an end—going as far as receiving investment or setting up agreements in the months following their application,” said Gonzalo Galindo, Head of CEMEX Ventures.
The 2022 edition reunites previous partners Dysruptek by Haskell, Ferrovial, GS Futures, Hilti, VINCI Group’s Leonard, and NOVA by Saint-Gobain, and welcomes Black & Veatch, Procore Technologies, and Zacua Ventures.
The 10 companies will evaluate all applications before choosing who will go on to participate in a final Pitchday event in November.
Applications for this phase of the competition will be accepted until September 4, 2022.
