Best of IBSx: Most Innovative Start-Ups

IBSx Start-Up Zone

Nine companies.  Nine solutions.

You don’t have to be an industry insider to get a glimpse at products or services that could shake up the residential construction industry over the course of the next few years — you simply have to check out the following businesses, their descriptions, and what they have to offer.

These are the very best from a field of more than 100 applicants:

  • 1build An on-demand cost estimation service that helps builders win more bids.
  • BidBird® A construction marketplace where buyers post their construction material needs and material suppliers bid to win orders. One-round blind auctions eliminate collusion and encourage the most competitive pricing.
  • Dweller A builder and installer of prefab accessory dwelling units (ADUs).
  • EPIC Block A manufacturer of energy efficient, fire-resistant concrete skinned insulated building blocks.
  • Mighty Buildings A construction technology company that creates modular homes and building components using 3D printers utilizing a thermoset composite material that hardens when exposed to UV light.
  • On3 A mobile-first AI-based field learning app that aims to educate construction staff on building practices and construction specifications.
  • RezDox A black-owned, woman-owned company that offers a smart tool that digitizes and calculates the equity gained from your home’s renovations, improvements, repairs and maintenance in real-time.
  • Rivet A free communication app designed to help builders save time, resolve problems faster, and get an organized record of conversations, photos, tasks, and other important jobsite info.
  • StratoDem Analytics A data science firm that generates hyperlocal economic, demographic and performance forecasting and analytics.

The Start-Up Zone is slated to return as a feature of the NAHB International Builders’ Show® in Orlando, Florida, in February 8-10, 2022.
