The third edition of this competition is aimed at entrepreneurs and startups that seek to innovate in the construction sector.

Madrid, February 22, 2019.– CEMEX Ventures announces the launch of the Construction Startup Competition 2019, to identify startups with the ambition to lead the transformation of the construction industry.
Under the slogan Apply. Grow. Make your mark, CEMEX Ventures, the Corporate Risk Capital of CEMEX, presents its third call, open until April 21, 2019. It challenges entrepreneurs and startups to set their brand in the construction ecosystem, to grow and position your solution in the industry. The winners will be evaluated for their relationship with six areas of opportunity ranging from intelligent buildings and cities, to the optimization of supply chain management, through construction with innovative materials and construction methods or optimization of productivity, efficiency and quality in the daily management of the works in work, among others.
Those interested in participating can register through the website of CEMEX Ventures. Once all the proposals have been evaluated, the winning startups will be invited to Monterrey (Mexico) on July 18, where they will present their projects to an audience made up of the world’s leaders in innovation, investment and construction. This will only be the beginning of the offer that the CEMEX venture capital area will offer to the winners. In addition to the springboard to new investors and companies focused on innovation, CEMEX Ventures will work with the startups that best fit their needs.
“We have a large offer for startups that enter our portfolio, in which we commit ourselves to build together a tailor made path to achieve their best results, said Gonzalo Galindo, CEO of CEMEX Ventures. “Beyond pure investment, we offer smart money to understand the needs of the entrepreneur and take advantage of our resources to climb to lead the construction revolution.”
Up to now there are more than four startups that, taken from the previous two CEMEX Ventures competitions, enjoy their offer. Ipsum and Prysmex, finalists of the first competition in 2017, are part of the investment portfolio and continue an eminent process of expansion to new geographies. Some 2018 Construction Startup Competition finalists continue to work closely with CEMEX, opening markets in new countries, piloting their technology and exploring investment possibilities.
