Construct

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2016The last summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro left Brazil $1 billion over budget on its 12 remodeled or built sports facilities-just one example of Brazil's notoriously complicated and inefficient construction industry. Construct aims to cut through the bureaucracy, increase transparency, and save Brazil a whole lot of money.
