Leonard is partner of the “2020 Construction Startup Competition”

CEMEX Ventures, CEMEX’s Corporate Venture Capital Unit, announced today the launch of the 2020 Construction Startup Competition. This year, Leonard, Ferrovial, Hilti, and NOVA by Saint-Gobain joined the competition with the objective of identifying and fostering startups to lead the transformation of the construction industry.

Under the slogan “You are the missing piece,” the five key industry players invite all entrepreneurs worldwide with innovative construction solutions to participate in this year’s edition by submitting their projects from May 19 through July 26, 2020. The winners will be evaluated on five areas of opportunity within the industry—from smart cities and buildings to optimization of supply chain management, construction with innovative materials or methods, and optimization of productivity, efficiency, and quality in daily project management, among others.

CEMEX Ventures, Ferrovial, Hilti, VINCI Group’s Leonard, and NOVA by Saint-Gobain come together for the 2020 Construction Startup Competition to add their weight behind startups breaking the paradigm of one of the least digitized and most fragmented industries. They will join their expertise and resources to boost startups with their knowledge of infrastructure, materials, and equipment, among other disciplines.

Those interested in participating can apply through CEMEX Ventures’ webpage https://www.cemexventures.com/startup-competition-2020/.
