CRH Ventures launches Roads of the Future accelerator programme for start-ups

CRH Ventures, the venture capital unit of building materials solutions provider CRH, has launched its latest accelerator programme – Roads of the Future. The programme targets promising start-ups in the Construction Technology (ConTech) and ClimateTech space, focusing on groundbreaking innovation for advancing the future of roads.

The Roads of the Future accelerator will identify companies that can demonstrate solutions to specific challenges within three distinctive segments of the roads ecosystem; Smart and Safe Roads, Green and Resilient Roads, and Productivity in Road Construction. CRH is the leader in solutions for sustainable road construction across North America and Europe and the programme offers an exceptional opportunity for start-ups to pilot and scale their solutions in collaboration with CRH operating companies.

Eduardo Gomez, Head of CRH Ventures, said: “Roads form the arteries of our society, and the Roads of the Future accelerator is our commitment to driving further innovation across this vital area of infrastructure. We invite start-ups to join us in helping shape the roads of the future, leveraging CRH’s unmatched expertise and scale in road construction.”

To participate in the programme, applications must be submitted through the CRH Ventures website by Thursday 28 March. Evaluations will then take place throughout April and May, with the pilot phase running from June to December 2024.
