Fund launched for start-ups with innovative solutions for the construction industry

Colmore Tang and Virgin StartUp have teamed up to create ConstrucTech, the construction industry’s first technology accelerator programme.

Virgin StartUp is scouting for start-ups with market-ready products or services that can address one or more of the biggest industry challenges.

Applications for ConstrucTech are open until Thursday 31 May. Shortlisted applicants will then be asked to pitch their idea to a panel of industry experts from which the programme participants will be chosen. 

The ultimate aim of the ConstrucTech programme is to see successful companies trial their solution on one of Colmore Tang’s live sites, as well as potentially gaining access to the £10m innovation fund to facilitate broader adoption of the technology.
