Running an efficient startup competition

When you’re organising a startup competition you want a smooth application and selection process, and not have to worry about data entry, analytics or a cumbersome screening workflow.

That’s why we’re proud that the Construction Startup Competition 2023, organised by Cemex Ventures and a group of leading international VCs and corporates, has chosen to automate the application and screening process using Venture IQ’s platform Catalist as their open innovation platform.

The construction sector’s biggest startup competition

Cemex Ventures, Black & Veatch, Dysruptek by Haskell, Ferrovial, Hilti, VINCI Group’s Leonard, NOVA by Saint Gobain, Trimble, and Zacua Ventures joined forces to host the 7th edition of the construction sector’s biggest startup competition.

With the startup challenge Cemex Ventures is looking to accelerate new construction technologies in 4 key themes:

  • Sustainable construction
  • Construction supply chain
  • Enhanced productivity
  • The future of construction

For startups in the industry they provide a great opportunity to build a valuable network, attract capital, secure a pilot or pitch for prominent industry players.

Running an efficient startup competition with Catalist as open innovation platform

Automating data entry through an application page linked to Catalist, capturing analytics of the applicant flow, structuring of data and an easy visual screening tool for internal and external assessors are some of the key functionalities with which we are supporting this global startup competition. But we don’t stop at software, our dedicated support team stands ready to make sure everything runs smoothly, allowing the Construction Startup Competition team to focus on fostering innovation.
