Economic Insights at Scale

Autocase is a Cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) company that is pioneering Economic Analysis software for buildings. At the intersection of PropTech and ClimateTech, our platform provides predictive analytics for carbon, life-cycle costs, and stakeholder benefits in order to cost-justify greener, healthier buildings and help design teams achieve true sustainability.

This Reg CF offering is made available through StartEngine Capital, LLC. This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

$1,232,714.17 Raised


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.

Help us build a better future today by investing in Autocase, and join us as we work to revolutionize a multi-trillion dollar global sector.

Did Autocase hold any funds with SIVB? If so how much?

How is Autodesk's 2 million prior investment worth only 8 percent shouldn't it be at least more than 9.5 percent. Did they sell any of their initial stake or was the valuation of the company reduced in between after Autodesk made its investment.

Hello Autocase team, I have two questions: 1. According to SEC filings, the revenue was $910,563, what is your revenue projection that supports the 22X revenue multiple? 2. How would the current funding affect your capital structure? Thank you.

Do you anticipate that Autocase investors will eventually see a liquid return on their investment? How many years do you think it will be before you do an IPO (or get acquired)?



Todd Hahn

John, congrats on the two new deals! Are they for the existing SaaS product or will this also be related to Carbonsight? Will this revenue be "new" and will it begin to hit in Q4? Thanks.



Todd Hahn

Hello. I have a couple of questions for you. 1. What is your current burn rate and cash on hand? 2. Do you intend on doing an institutional raise in the near future? 3. Will you be releasing your Q3 results soon? 4. How are you anticipating the release of Carbonsight to impact your revenue? Will there be paying clients as soon as it is in production? 5. With the FAANG contract, is that revenue already being realized or will that be tied to Carbonsight? 6. What is your current head count? Of those, how many are engineers? Do you anticipate a growth in head count in the near term? Thank you!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
