Leonard and eight construction industry leaders launch the 8th edition of the Construction Startup Competition, the world's largest competition dedicated to construction sector startups. Applications are open until June 30, 2024. Leonard and its partners invite startups bringing promising solutions in sustainable construction to submit their applications.

A competition to promote more sustainable construction

Leonard hosts the eight edition of Construction Startup Competition alongside prominent industry players and venture and venture capital firms Cemex Ventures, Caterpillar, Dysruptek by Haskell, Ferrovial, Hilti, NOVA by Saint-Gobain, Trimble, and Zacua Ventures.

Construction Startup Competition 2024 searches for the brightest startups from around the world to disrupt the industry and make construction more sustainable, efficient, and on time.

This competition aims to discover the most promising innovations in sustainable construction, productivity improvement, supply chain management, and emerging techniques and technologies in construction. This year again, Leonard teams with CEMEX Ventures, the corporate venture capital and open innovation unit of CEMEX to announce the opening of applications. 

The Construction Startup Competition promotes innovation, collaboration, and the adoption of technology, focusing on solutions in four key areas: Green Construction (sustainability), Enhanced Productivity (efficiency), Construction Supply Chain (timeliness), and the Future of Construction (disruption). This platform serves as a valuable opportunity for startups to connect with potential clients and partners, secure funding, test their products in global markets, and pitch to active industry investors and potential collaborators.
