Top 50 Contech Startups

What is a construction startup?

The construction industry has traditionally been passive in terms of innovation, digitalization, and new applications of technology. But not anymore.

Like in many other industries, the construction sector has entered into an era of change, where new emergent business models are driving its revolution. According to McKinsey & Company, the adoption of new digital technologies in the construction sector can enhance competition and productivity by almost 15%, so it is no wonder that in recent years many new players have emerged.

Construction technology (Contech) startups are just some of the new players helping the industry become more sustainable, productive, efficient, and innovative, and are transforming the way we have traditionally seen construction. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the top 50 Contech startups to watch out for this year.

These are the best construction startups

This year our Top 50 list is more diverse than ever in terms of geography, technology, and the maturity of the startups included. We classified each startup according to the following categories: Green Construction, Enhanced Productivity, Construction Supply Chain, and Future of Construction.
