RElab selects 9 start-ups for 2022 cohort

RElab the international scale-up programme curated by Goldacre, the venture capital arm of the Noé Group, has today announced 9 exceptional start-ups selected for its 2022 cohort.

The companies represent innovation from across the globe in the areas of industrialised construction, sustainability, supply chain management and digitisation. Selected from hundreds of applications, the cohort spans the UK, US, Germany, Finland, Norway and Australia.

The programme is supported by leading industry partners including Capreon, JCA Engineering, Kier, Knight Frank, Landsec, Lockton, Logifruit, Mace, RSBG, Sacyr and White & Case.

As part of the 14-week programme, start-ups will benefit from curated introductions to decisionmakers within RElab’s network of industry partners to explore commercial opportunities and receive feedback around scaling and commercialisation of their products. Start-ups also benefit from mentorship, expertise surgeries, investment introductions, as well as an initial £100,000 investment.

The 2022 cohort features:

Arx (UK): Arx Alliance is a cyber-risk management platform that allows corporate users to identify, evaluate and risk-score their suppliers and other third-party contacts.
ASDRO (Germany): ASDRO offers efficient surveying of the surface and subsurface by drone and uses proprietary hardware and software to collect and process complex subsurface data.

Avvir (US): Avvir’s AI platform compares reality-capture data against the BIM model to algorithmically quantify construction progress and evaluate construction quality in a hardware agnostic solution that ingests and analyses both 360-degree photos and laser scans in near real-time.

Cambridge Carbon Capture (CCC) (UK): Cambridge Carbon Capture has developed a patented technology which removes CO2 from the atmosphere and converts it into a usable, versatile and widely marketable material that is strong, lightweight and extremely fire and water resistant.

Hyperion Robotics (Finland): Hyperion Robotics has developed a robotic system that automatically produces reinforced concrete structures that eliminate waste by up to 90% and cost and execution time by up to 70%.

Podaris (UK): Podaris is a real-time online collaboration platform for planners, engineers, policymakers and public stakeholders to rapidly draft from scratch or import from existing projects to quickly test ideas.

Rebartek (Norway): Rebartek automates rebar installation and produces bespoke reinforcement cages using an automated robotic manufacturing process to deliver precision rebar cages on short notice.

Voyage Control (UK): Voyage Control has developed a cloud-based platform to manage, optimise, track, and communicate deliveries to streamline their customer’s end-to-end logistics and supply chain.

Ynomia (Australia): Ynomia offers an end-to-end solution to enable connected jobsites, which locate in real-time: people, materials, plant and equipment to convert worksites into an IOT digital twin that harnesses real-time data to build faster and safer.

Fionnuala Hogan, founder of RElab, said: “With our partners, our vision is to create an international scale-up programme, supporting exceptional innovators from across the globe and building a community of creativity and deep collaboration across industry, investment and entrepreneurs. As the pandemic has shown, the world is constantly changing and we and our partners are passionate about being part of creating a more sustainable smart built world. We are thrilled to share our 2022 cohort with you and to support them on the next stage of their growth.”

David Bloom, founding partner of Goldacre, Noé Group, added: “It is great to be back with the third instalment of our RElab programme. Once again, we have been highly impressed by the diverse range of talent from this year’s cohort – all of whom have compelling solutions for the build environment. Alongside our committed industry partners, these companies are in a tremendous position to take their ideas and businesses to the next level. Watch this space.”
