buildingThe 6th edition of the Construction Startup Competition 2022 will be held in November, and entrants are now invited to apply. This international competition is open to start-ups, and consists of four categories, these are:

• Green construction
• Enhanced productivity
• Construction’s supply chain
• Construction future is now

The aim of the competition is to identify entrepreneurs who have developed “innovative solutions that help solve the industry’s main challenges”. These individuals will benefit from meeting potential business partners, who may wish to develop their ideas.

CEMEX Ventures has teamed up with construction companies VINCI Group’s Leonard, Dysruptek by Haskell, Ferrovial, GS Futures, Hilti, NOVA by Saint-Gobain, Black & Veatch, Procore Technologies, and Zacua Ventures. Head of CEMEX Ventures Gonzalo Galindo explained, “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.” He said: “This competition has served as a shortcut for many start-ups to connect with top industry investors and begin their successful collaborations, and this year´s line-up guarantees it will be no exception.”

The 10 companies listed above will look at all applications, then choose who will participate in a final Pitchday event in November. The closing date for applications is September 4, 2022.

Schemes like this can only be a good thing for an industry that has suffered setbacks recently due to factors like Covid and Brexit. These issues have exacerbated an already difficult situation where there is a shortage of skilled workers. They have resulted in a shortage of building materials, along with other problems for the construction industry to do with transportation etc.
