Wastebox beim Construction Startup Competition 2021

Wastebox on stage at the biggest event for construction investors.

Cemex Ventures is the corporate venture capital of CEMEX, one of the world’s biggest players in the construction industry. CEMEX operates on a global scale in the production, distribution and sale of cement and other construction materials and are market leaders in many fields of the industry.

With CEMEX Ventures, they invest globally in innovative startups in the industry to “drive the construction industry revolution”, as it says on their website. The aim is to create a network of startups, leading companies, universities and other stakeholders to work together on a new one and better future through the construction industry.

This network is nourished by the Construction Startup Competition, which is being held for the fifth time this year and which gives young companies worldwide the opportunity to present themselves to well-known investors in the construction industry to generate capital.

Since the beginning of 2021 wastebox took up the challenge and has been working towards the climax-event of the competition. We´ve been invited as one of the 10 winning startups out of hundreds of applicants to present our project at the Builtworlds Venture Conference on November 11th in Miami.

CEMEX Ventures, Ferrovial, GS Futures, Dysruptek – Haskell, HILTI, VINCI Group´s Leonard and NOVA by Saint-Gobain are searching for the most innovative construction startups to help transform the industry as it´s known today.

Managing Director Stefan Klanner will pitch wastebox on the stage of the largest event for construction investors. That alone is amazing! It remains exciting. We´ll keep you informed about the “pitch day” on November 11th and ask you to keep your fingers crossed!

Update Nov 12th, 2021:

Wastebox takes off internationally

We did not win though, but Stefan Klanner made a great presentation to an international specialist audience and was able to use the Builtworlds Venture Conference to expand our network and make great industry contacts. A valuable experience! Thanks to Cemex Ventures for this great opportunity.

Congratulations to the whole team at Document Crunch for winning the construction startup competition 2021!
