Session: Tech Talk
You’ve seen them on TV, now you can be one of the dragons.
On TV’s Dragons’ Den, hopeful entrepreneurs have only a few minutes to convince a panel of seasoned investors to back their product idea. On the Construction Leadership Forum stage, three companies will have 10 minutes each to explain to a voting audience how their technology improves productivity in the construction industry.
As an audience member, you’ll decide which solution is of the highest priority for today’s construction industry.
So let your dragon personality loose as we explore the technology innovations happening within our industry.
