Idea to IPO presents:

Latest Innovations in Construction Tech

Tuesday, July 18, 6:00pm-9:00pm, San Mateo


Construction Tech is the new technology that deals with designing, planning, construction, and management of infrastructure such as roads, tunnels, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams, and utilities. Contractors are using the latest technologies in IoT, big data, robotics, AI, analytics and AR/VR to more efficiently build design and manage big projects and the VCs are starting to understand the potential in this new vertical.

A distinguished panel will discuss the latest developments, future opportunities and what is hot and in demand.

Please come with questions and comments.
