CEMEX’s open innovation and venture capital unit, CEMEX Ventures, has been selected as one of the construction industry’s most relevant investors in the BuiltWorlds Venture Investors 50 List 2018. BuiltWorlds is a media network, committed to using technology and innovation to improve the future of the construction industry.
The list features 50 companies and includes three categories: Venture Funds, Strategics, and Accelerators. CEMEX Ventures was selected for the Strategics category, standing out for offering more startups than economic investments. The unit’s value proposition also includes support in the marketing phase, expansion into new markets, and access for entrepreneurs into an expert community within construction, technology, and business.
CEMEX Ventures has played a key role in bringing innovation to CEMEX, understanding the day-to-day challenges of the CEMEX’s industry and exploring a number of solutions to solve these challenges through new business models, trends, and technologies. As a leading business materials company, CEMEX has been able to apply these solutions on an international scale.
A network that fosters connections between technology and new approaches in construction, BuiltWorlds has included CEMEX Ventures in a number of its events and publications. For example, in 2017 the CEO of CEMEX Ventures, Gonzalo Galindo, was invited to a conference concerning the topics and trends for investment in the construction industry.
