Today is International Women in Engineering Day and we wanted to highlight two fantastic engineers in two very different parts of the field. Maria Liliana Cortina is on the front line of bringing construction to the cutting edge, designing and testing the sensor systems we use to digitise the physical world. Beibhinn Keenan is on the other side of the equation, building the systems and interfaces which take the data from the sensors Liliana creates and turns them into insights and intelligence for our customers. Together they are tackling some of construction's biggest challenges and making the industry more efficient, safer, and more sustainable. 🏗️💚🌍
Converge, an AI-based construction technology company, has raised over GBP 15 million to digitise, optimise, and decarbonise construction materials and processes responsible for 11% of global CO2 emissions. The round was led by mission-aligned investor OGCI Climate Investments (OGCI CI), a specialist decarbonization investor, with the participation of TO Ventures, and existing investors.
In this final chapter of our series, let’s take a look at how Converge fits into the sustainability picture, helping your company to move beyond offsetting and towards a greener future.
