This Report is a New 2024 Definitive Resource for Evaluating the Smart Building Startup Landscape.

Of the 1,221 companies founded since 2013 in the management and operations phase of the global smart commercial buildings space, 691 are active and fit our definition of a startup. This report selects 100 startups for further analysis that have gained traction in the last year across 16 major segments.

Our definition of a Startup is “a private company formed for no more than 10 years, that is focused on the commercial and industrial buildings market, is not a subsidiary or an acquisition of a larger company, and is often financed by venture capital or private equity funding.”

The report INCLUDES at no extra cost, a spreadsheet listing all the startups gaining traction, and a presentation file with high-resolution charts from the report. This report is also included in our 2024 Premium Subscription Service.
