ESA BIC Bavaria welcomes startup digitalising the construction industry

Together with the all current incubated startups, the ESA BIC Bavaria team gives a hearty welcome to its new incubatee klarx, providing an online platform for renting construction equipment. After klarx tracks the location of the construction site and the required machine is chosen by the builder, the online platform is able to calculate over Geo-data which machine from which construction rental station is the closest available, in order to get the best deal on rental, insurance and delivery costs. Via GPS tracking the company can find the closest logistician who can pick up and deliver the machine. The algorithm of the company can predict the time of delivery to the construction site and additionally provides builders with a live update on arrival time. Through this platform builders have access to 150,000 machines, delivered at the highest speed, best price and transparent traceability.

Klarx is experiencing incubation at the ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria in Oberpfaffenhofen for two years. Are you interested in joining our network and do you have an innovative idea yourself? Then have a look at the details of the ESA BIC Bavaria programme.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
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 Defence 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.

ESA BIC Bavaria has four selection rounds each year. The next application deadline for the incubation programme is 29 August 2016. Apply now for ESA BIC Bavaria
