BC’s green construction unicorn Nexii raises $35M, opens US manufacturing site
New funding: Nexii — a Vancouver, B.C. startup with the distinction of being Canada’s fastest company to ascend from launch to unicorn status — has raised a new $35 million round. The company said that its current valuation is nearly $1.6 billion.
The funding round was led by Horizon Technology Finance and Trinity Capital. The company previously raised $45 million in September 2021.
The technology: Nexii’s buildings reduce construction waste and have a smaller carbon footprint in their build and operation. The company has developed Nexiite, a green alternative to concrete, which is traditionally made in a carbon-intensive process.
In February, the startup announced that it was opening its first U.S. manufacturing site in Pennsylvania. Its customers include Starbucks, Popeyes and Marriott. Nexii also shared news this year that in partnership with Siemens it had developed an electric vehicle charging prototype that uses Nexiite.
Climate impacts: Nexii construction and building materials have a 31% smaller carbon footprint than conventional approaches using steel and traditional concrete, according to the company and a third-party life cycle assessment.
Nexii seems to be a captivating startup with multiple possibilities of growth. Congratulations to the entire team of nexii and my best wishes for futureShishir Gupta CEO & Founder of startuplanes
