Digital Construction Week seeks innovative startups to help shape future of built environment

DCW in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network have launched their search for the most innovative start up technology and solutions providers in Europe.   The Digital Construction Week StartUp Village will offer a handpicked group of the very latest startup companies a chance to exhibit at Digital Construction Week.

“We’re looking for the latest technologies and innovative new concepts with the potential to solve some of the industry’s biggest challenges.  Whether a new app or a technology just out of R&D or a new piece of software being released to the market, we want to showcase the companies that will help shape the industry over the next 5-10 years,”said Luke Collings, Co-Founder and Director, Digital Construction Week.

The StartUp Village will give a selection of startup companies the opportunity to present their innovative product or service to the key influencers in the AECO industry and help grow their network to influence and change the industry.  Those wishing to apply can do so online, winners will be announced late July 2017.

The StartUp Village is a dedicated feature area forming part of the Digital Construction Week exhibition.  Each startup will be offered their own dedicated booth where they can showcase their innovative solution and engage with the leading companies and clients in the AECO space.
