Industry Driven Investing

Shadow micro-funds are for early-stage companies and have investment minimums less than traditional venture capital. Our funds are shaped by partners with a deep knowledge of a function within the built industry: development, design, construction, and operations. This gives our funds the greatest chance of success for returns. And we’ve incorporated industry insiders in the process, creating a fund for new and experienced venture investors alike.

Why Invest in Built Environment technology?

  • Thinning Margins: There is a crisis to innovate in the building industry as it becomes more crowded, less profitable, and races to keep up with population growth.

  • Labor Shortage: As one generation retires, the built environment is finding fewer skilled workers, increasing the urgency for automated services, robotics, and improve efficiencies.

    • Abysmal Productivity: Productivity in construction has not only slowed but also decreased to levels unseen since 1968, making the decline the worst for most industries.

  • Environmental Crisis: Countries and private organizations are facing a crisis concerning the climate, evolving sustainability standards, and infrastructure needs of growing urban populations.

  • Ubiquity & Lower Price of Tech: Unlike a decade ago, owners, lenders, appraisers, builders, designers, and subcontractors carry smart devices. New companies can grow more affordably.

  • Proven Adjacent Market Adoption: Advancements in compatible verticals like 3D printing, IoT, robotics, autonomous equipment, cybersecurity, envirotech, AI, ML are primed for the built environment.
