Mighty Buildings is reimagining the construction industry through 3D printing of homes. With their advanced robotics and proprietary composite materials, Mighty Buildings is able to print an entire home offsite in around twenty-four to thirty-six hours. By applying state-of-the-art automation and innovative new technologies, Mighty Buildings can produce 3D printed structures two times as quickly and with ten times less waste than conventional construction. On a structural basis, their composite materials are stronger and more resilient than concrete.
ArcTern is focused on investing in breakthrough clean technology companies addressing climate change and sustainability. Its latest investment in Mighty Buildings was driven by the company’s unique technology and potential to eliminate waste from the construction process. The Mighty Buildings panelized technology printing system yields virtually zero waste and the byproduct waste is recycled into the production of new material.
“We chose ArcTern Ventures as our first specialized sustainability investor because we believe they can help us build the right sustainability playbook,” said Slava Solonitsyn, CEO & Co-Founder at Mighty Buildings. “The Planet needs over a billion homes in the next 15-20 years and we need to build them without exacerbating the climate crisis.”
“Mighty Buildings has the potential to disrupt the construction industry through its cutting-edge technology” said Mira Inbar, Associate Partner of ArcTern. “With that disruption will come enormous social and environmental benefits, including the ability to dramatically reduce waste, produce net zero homes more efficiently, and enable communities to rebuild faster after climate events. That’s really exciting, and why we invested.”
