Reasons to Invest

Autocase has partnered with industry giant Autodesk to showcase the value of sustainable building designs with our SaaS. To date, Autocase has analyzed over 5,000 projects worth a combined total of more than $100 billion.
The $7 trillion global buildings and construction market is seeing unprecedented pressure from owners and investors to understand the impacts of their projects on ESG reporting, regulatory compliance and impact investing.* Autocase measures those impacts.
With over $1.3 million in sales last year, Autocase is riding a five year trend of more than doubling software revenue on average year over year. Our clients already include 5 of the top 10 Architecture firms in the U.S., as well as very high profile building owners like Brookfield and Atlanta Airport.

Creating more sustainable, resilient, and cost-effective built environments

When constructing a building, justifying the economics can be a difficult task when it comes to environmentally and socially conscious design. Autocase exists to align the multi-trillion dollar global buildings and construction industry with the growing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) paradigm. 


Our software enables design teams and owners to optimize, prioritize, and engage stakeholders in financial decisions, providing the metrics needed to make educated, sustainable investments. Plan, monitor, and track projects with triple-bottom-line analytics and quantify the financial, social, and environmental impacts with a detailed cost-benefit analysis.


It can pay to go green, and Autocase helps make that a reality by unleashing the power of economic insights at scale.


The Problem


Many don't have adequate information to see the full benefit of sustainability

While awareness of climate change and sustainability is seemingly higher than ever, one sector that desperately needs an eco-friendly overhaul is the global construction industry. Unfortunately, many organizations don’t integrate sustainable operations because they believe they cannot justify its cost from a financial perspective.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


Yet, the market is seeing unprecedented pressure from owners and investors to understand the impacts of their projects for Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) reporting (source). As the world pushes for carbon emission reductions, improved resiliency, and social equity, the real estate industry needs to move quickly to address these consequential concerns (source). 


With construction and operations accounting for such a large portion of the global greenhouse gas emissions, architects, engineers, and sustainability professionals need more efficient access to data and insights in order to make the business case for sustainable and resilient designs.


The Solution


Autocase answers the sustainability question with triple-bottom-line analytics

With Autocase, architects, engineers, and sustainability professionals now have access to the data and insights needed to economically justify better buildings and achieve true sustainability. Using cost-benefit analysis, sustainable and eco-friendly impacts are translated into Environmental, Social and Economic metrics.

 

Our software can provide location-based data like carbon and air pollution emissions, weather data, socioeconomic data, and utility rates to help meet your company’s planning needs. For design teams, Autocase’s user-friendly interface enables users to create, modify, and compare multiple designs so clients can choose the most effective carbon strategy. We even simplify year-end reporting.



Autocase’s interactive and customizable portfolio dashboard tracks the status of progress towards clients’ internal sustainability goals with every project. With one-click reporting, users can promote and share metrics, charts, and documentation to project stakeholders.


As a Cloud-based SaaS company, our software is available through three subscription tier options. The first tier is our Project Business Case, which costs $2,000 per project. Our Enterprise subscription plan is $30,000 per year and covers unlimited projects for unlimited users. The third plan, the Enterprise+ plan, is $75,000 and allows for unlimited projects, users, customer support, and custom data services.

The Market


The building industry is urgently in need of tools like Autocase

Both inside and outside the U.S., governments and private companies alike are making a concerted effort to reduce their carbon footprint. Regulations like Local Law 97 are being enacted, requiring larger buildings to meet energy and emission standards before the end of the decade. Meanwhile, in an executive order from December 2021, President Biden outlined the country's roadmap to ensure climate resilient operations.  


As the $7 trillion global buildings and construction market is seeing unprecedented pressure from owners and investors to address these concerns, Autocase is already providing companies with the comprehensive cost benefit analysis needed to meet these new requirements. (source, source)

Our Traction


Over 5,000 projects analyzed to date

We knew when we started Autocase that we had something special, and our early success has proven that belief in spades. Thus far, we have secured almost $10 million in seed funding, with Autodesk, a multi-billion dollar tech firm, standing as our second largest shareholder. In 2021, Autocase had over $1.3M in sales and our software revenue has grown by an average of more than 100% YoY in the 5 years since its launch.



Another important achievement for Autocase is our recognition as a partner to the U.S. Green Building Council. As the country’s LEED building accreditation program, the USGBC gives up to two LEED pilot credits for an Autocase analysis, further demonstrating our legitimacy to the sustainable building market.



To date, Autocase has analyzed over 5,000 projects worth a combined total of more than $100 billion and is also used by some of the largest architecture and engineering companies, asset owners, and airports, such as Arup, Gensler, Stantec, Brookfield, the City of San Antonio, Miami-Dade County and the Atlanta Airport.



Funds from this raise will be devoted to advancing our new carbon-related beta product, Carbonsight, to full commercial release, continuing to expand Autocase beyond the U.S. and Canada, and further developing our plans to integrate with Autodesk’s product line.



Why Invest


Constructing a greener future with economic insights at scale

Autocase has a razor-sharp focus on the benefits it provides our communities. Turning to crowdfunding was the natural path for our company to grow and succeed, as the core of our platform is focused on the individuals these sustainable buildings and infrastructure serve.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


Our software is innovative, patent-protected, and proven to help clients make eco-friendly choices at scale. Autocase has already secured millions in financing, established incredible  partnerships with Autodesk and the US Green Building Council amongst others, and claims some of the biggest organizations in the world as happy clients.

BMW’s MINI Turns to Autocase to Calculate the ESG Impacts of it's Venture Accelerator

25 days ago

Autocase recently collaborated with consultancy HR&A Advisors to support BMW’s MINI URBAN-X venture capital accelerator to quantify ESG impacts (social and environmental) of their portfolio companies since its 2016 inception.  URBAN-X advocates for companies shaping the future of cities through technology and design.

Aggregate carbon emission reductions of URBAN-X companies for the years 2022 and 2023 were the focus. From Autocase’s calculations, the expected result is the reduction of nearly 122,000 metric tons of carbon in the years 2022-2023. This is equivalent to the carbon emitted from 302.5 million miles driven by average passenger vehicles, or just over 15,000 homes powered by a mix of energy sources, or 2 million trees planted and grown for 10 years, or nearly 15 billion smartphone charges.

We’re proud to have been involved with a global brand and its incubator, driving change through investing and growing sustainable technology solutions for urban challenges.  Our team’s experience across all real estate and infrastructure sectors lent itself well to URBAN-X’s diverse portfolio and was timed well given growing investor and stakeholder demand for more objective, defensible characterization of ESG outcomes.   We’re hoping to find more ways to work with these emerging tech leaders.

New Podcast About Our Carbonsight Solution Now in Beta

28 days ago

Our CEO, John Williams and our VP of Product and Digital, Katelyn Lawson, were recently hosted on the Environmental Social Justice podcast to talk about our new Carbonsight software solution. As mentioned on our campaign page, 40% of the world’s carbon emissions come from buildings. With this in mind, we worked in conjunction with the nation’s leading architects, engineers, commercial building owners and multinationals to develop Carbonsight, now in beta. 

In recent years, organizations have been making bold net zero carbon commitments and now the focus is on how they can achieve these targets.  Carbonsight helps companies to cost effectively manage their net zero carbon commitments. Its focus is on forecasting those carbon footprints related to facilities and buildings and being able to keep track of retrofit progress towards decarbonization goals.

The full podcast is available to watch here.  You can stay tuned to our company updates as we will announce the official launch of Carbonsight soon. 

Also, just a reminder to register for our webinar on September 8th at 5:00 PM.

New McKinsey Report Details the Rapidly Growing Net Zero Buildings Industry

about 1 month ago

A recent publication from McKinsey looks at how the transition to net zero buildings will change our current buildings market. They suggest that it will bring forth opportunities for companies in the building sector in two major ways: retrofitting and making sure new construction meets net zero requirements.

This increasing focus on net zero will lead to increasing demand for systems that manage retrofit projects and construction – such as our SaaS product, Autocase.

Description automatically generated with low confidence

The most promising number in the article is the 38% estimated growth of the buildings market size (including construction, materials, equipment, and operations) by 2030.

Since the beginning of 2022, we are already seeing increased spending by government on green building initiatives, most recently being the Inflation Reduction Act, and we believe that this trend will continue to grow and bring increasing opportunities for those involved in the buildings market.  

Autocase has focused on quantifying the benefits associated with additional sustainable investments compared to minimum code buildings, and is pleased to see this market response to climate change. The business case remains more important than ever, showing not just upfront capital costs, but life cycle costs and whole building life cycle carbon impacts as well, in order to meet the constraints of today without adding a “brown discount” cost tomorrow.

You can read more about some of the changes in this sector due to net zero in a recent blog post of ours “The Business Case to Avoid a Brown Discount”.

Check Out Our New USGBC Course on the Environmental Justice Toolkit, It’s Free!

about 1 month ago

Environmental Justice (EJ) is an area that we’ve seen increasing content in government requests for proposals and AEC commitments, for example the IRA (Inflation Reduction Act) provides over $60 billion for EJ priorities for investments in disadvantaged communities. As our involvement on this topic deepens, we’ve come to recognize the essential elements to driving investment towards EJ solutions.  We’re proud of our collaboration with the American Institute of Architects and their large firm roundtable group (particularly Stantec, HOK, Jacobs, Quinn Evans, and DLR Group) and advisors from the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) and the NAACP’s Sustainable Building Sector Group, in creating a free open-access EJ toolkit to support project development and stakeholder engagement (https://www.ejtoolkit.com/). The toolkit is currently live and available for anyone to start creating projects on it for free.

Inflation Reduction Act Invests Over $350 Billion In Climate and Energy Policies!

about 1 month ago

The Climate Tech sector has been re-energized with the news that the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will invest an additional $369 billion in climate and energy policies over the coming years. This not only mobilizes new investment in climate focused technology, but is also helps reassured investors that the market for climate tech is urgent and growing.  Breakthrough Energy Ventures, the Bill Gates founded climate fund, has estimated that 300 to 1,000 new companies will exist because of the IRA.  


As a firm of economists leading the charge developing carbon and social/environmental SaaS business case analytics software for buildings, these policies and funding mechanisms have important implications. The IRA provides tax incentives for investments in clean energy, electric vehicles, etc. and supports workforce development and permitting processes through the provision of additional funds to the Department of Energy, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the Interior Department. 

The desire for more companies and tools focused on decarbonization and green buildings continues to grow, and we hope that you can join our company on this quest. By investing in the first 30 days of launch, you are eligible for a major early bird perk.   Read more about all campaign details on our page.
