David Hettinger, Founder & Principal, Entropy – a construction consulting firm – sat down to talk about his take on what’s happening in the industry right now and some of the biggest opportunities he sees to improve the efficiencies that span across the entire built ecosystem.
Entropy is a consulting firm that helps teams working with the built environment discover solutions to the problems they’re facing. This can mean either working with a startup that needs to scale fast or even a contractor team looking for that perfect tech solution that will help them overcome whatever issues they’re facing. Hettinger sees a large opportunity to improve the industry far away from jobsites in classrooms and educational programs that can help equip people with the right industry-specific knowledge to make sure they’re capable of solving issues the correct way.
Entropy has been a BuiltWorlds member for years and Hettinger continues to make great strides to educate and equip the people who make up the built environment. Our 2022 Buildings Conference in May served as the launch point for the brand new BuiltWorlds Chicago Forum. Hettinger, accompanied by other passionate industry leaders and educators, and a team of BuiltWorlds research analysts are pushing to make strides and bring attention to the Chicago startup community.
September 6th, the day ahead of our America’s Summit, the group will have it’s third meeting and present research they’ve completed and discuss some key insights they’ve found. This will also be the first time that the group will be hosting a Chicago-specific Demo Day competition where a handful of carefully selected Chicago Tech Startups will get their chance to present their business ideas to a panel of judges.
All BuiltWorlds members as well as any Summit attendee are welcome to join this meeting. To get more information visit either the Summit landing page, of the Chicago Forum landing page below:
