"It's like a high-quality Ikea building in a kit, but it's hurricane strength," says Ann Hand, CEO of Project Frog, a technology-meets-high-design startup. The firm creates low-energy prefab buildings that reduce both cost and waste while optimizing performance for the users inside. Hand -- who spent 20 years at BP, most recently as SVP of global brand marketing and innovation -- says that the VC -- backed Frog approaches buildings as tech platforms: a structure composed of "smart" parts that can be optimized depending on size, use, and location.
