Building Radar expands abroad - office space in San Francisco

The German Accelerator enables Building Radar - the "Google for construction projects" - to expand their business operations and to use office space in San Francisco.

Building Radar provides a global, satellite-based online search engine for new construction projects. This innovative solution opens new doors for the use of precision satellite imagery worldwide. The startup is currently incubated at ESA BIC Bavaria and was awarded the overall winner of the Copernicus Masters 2015 competition, both initiatives managed by AZO - space of innovation.

The German Accelerator supports high potential German technology and life sciences startups and assists them with their market entry to the United States. Building Radar was nominated as one of Germany's most innovative tech startups to dive into Silicon Valley. A preparation workshop organised by the German Accelerator, according to the motto "building global market leaders", instructed the startup about the Silicon Valley, its specific circumstances and provided the company with important contacts. Building Radar will soon be able to benefit from their new office space and use the geographical proximity to enhance their activity on the US market.

Building Radar GmbH
Building Radar supplies verified leads on construction sales, so the sales teams can focus on selling rather than researching and verifying leads themselves. Their data analytics platform is very useful to stay up-to-date on all the construction projects in regions and neighborhoods all around the world. It is possible to track the competitors' next moves, or evaluate new strategic partnerships.

Building Radar detects new construction projects months earlier than the competitors, which enables customers to make their sales first. They also verify lead specs, such as construction phase and building size, so customers can be flexible in decision-making processes. Building Radar ultimately connects all the dots within their data platform, in order to provide real-time intelligence on commercial real estate, so customers can strategically organise their team in accordance with this intelligence.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Building Radar is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from June 2015 to May 2017. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
