Economic Insights at Scale
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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)
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.
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.

The company operates from approximately 400 offices in 60 countries, has around 50,000 employees and manages about 4,100 million sq ft of commercial space.

Please check out our latest One-Pager on how Autocase creates value for our clients. Now more than ever organizations are trying to get the best bang-for-buck when it comes to sustainability investments in their buildings. Wider understanding of climate change combined with the pandemic is rapidly transforming this industry for the better!
Our CEO and COO presented a session last Thursday during the MoneyShow virtual event, if you missed it you can check it out here. You’ll learn about our raise and get some more insight into our upcoming Carbonsight product to address decarbonization at scale. Another thing that made it a pretty good week was Autocase being awarded $15K of free AWS credits by Amazon to support our ongoing Carbonsight development.
[The following is an automated notice from the StartEngine team].
Hello! Recently, a change was made to the Autocase offering. Here's an excerpt describing the specifics of the change:
Issuer is extending campaign end date
When live offerings undergo changes like these on StartEngine, the SEC requires that certain investments be reconfirmed. If your investment requires reconfirmation, you will be contacted by StartEngine via email with further instructions.
The Greenbuild International Conference & Expo is the building industry’s leading event. It draws thousands of participants (onsite in SF and online worldwide). It felt like going home as Autocase launched in the Autodesk Gallery right there at 1 Market Street. Our delegation agreed that for the first time, carbon reduction as well as the importance of connecting the dots between gains in health, human performance, environmental impact, and building design were front and center. Beyond carbon reduction goals, associated impacts to building occupants and the broader community are critical to making the case for higher performance building features.
There were four sessions including one led by our own Riley McKillop teamed up with America Alva from Page on the importance of developing frameworks to measure the impacts of sustainability. This emphasis was likely due to the interaction between green buildings and ESG considerations. The bottom line is that the VALUE of the total building impact is finally a headline in our industry.
The image below is of Kate and Riley from out team.
If you’d like to learn more about investing in Autocase, and our future plans, especially related to our new product Carbonsight please join us for our MoneyShow session on November 10th at 10:50 am ET. It's entirely free and you can take advantage of the rest of the investment related programming as well.
We've had some of our new investors ask us this exact question, so we're posting this one-pager to help clarify.
While awareness of climate change and sustainability is seemingly higher than ever, one sector that desperately needs an eco-friendly overhaul is the global building's retrofit and construction industry. Unfortunately, many organizations don’t yet build sustainably because they believe they cannot justify its cost from a financial perspective. As the world pushes for carbon reductions & improved resiliency the real estate industry needs to change ASAP and Autocase helps our clients with exactly that.
We would like to thank our growing community again for helping us reach another milestone this week. Autocase has successfully raised over $200K so far this round, with over 100 new investors.
Come join us at the MoneyShow Virtual Expo November 10th at 10:50 Eastern Time to learn more about Autocase and the details of our current crowdfunding round. This complete event is free to all participants and well worth your time.
This past week we read two articles that really turned our heads. The first was by Akshat Rathi, at Bloomberg News entitled, “This Climate Tech Boom is Recession-Proof”. He reinforced his point with data showing a dramatic upturn in VC funding in ClimateTech. He included this quote from Mark Cupta from Prelude Ventures, “2022 is on pace to eclipse every other year in venture-capital fundraising with the trend amplified for climate investing.”
The second article by Jacob Bourne with Insider Intelligence eMarketer was entitled, “Climate tech is positioned to uplift the economy during recession and beyond”. Bourne focused his attention on the near and long-term benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the “spillover effect” made possible by “climate tech’s prowess.” Bourne makes the point that, “the [IRA] investments need to provide tangible benefits to justify continued growth” and that the “risk of greenwashing by companies likely means there’ll be more regulatory scrutiny for the industry.” Autocase is part of that “prowess” that measures the tangible benefits possible in the ClimateTech world. Our automated analytics fill the gap between PropTech and ClimateTech by measuring and valuing outcomes associated with the built environment. Autocase informed business cases pave the way to higher performing buildings and infrastructure that deliver optimal financial, social, and environmental returns on investment. Autocase is the ClimateTech company that makes an economic case for a more sustainable, resilient, and less carbon intensive world.

How much can I invest?
With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
When will I receive my shares?
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
What will the return on my investment be?
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
Can I cancel my investment?
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
What is the difference between Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+?
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
