This Report is a New 2017 Definitive Resource for Evaluating Startup Companies in the Smart Buildings space.
Over the last nine years, a plethora of venture-backed startup companies have targeted commercial and industrial building owners and operators with technology offerings aimed not just at reducing energy costs, but also improving facility management efficiency and real estate operations. Also in order to increase the performance of physical security and safety in buildings and offering smart building to smart grid applications.
More recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has started to have a profound effect on the competitive landscape, as software platforms, advanced sensors and networking solutions enable a new range of data-driven solutions for buildings. New players are emerging offering innovative solutions and new business models, reflecting the market disruption currently underway.
Our definition of a StartUp is “A private company formed no earlier than 2008 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.”
