Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

nPlan is leading the drive to improve decision-making in construction by applying machine learning to dramatically improve how information is retained and utilised to influence risk and uncertainty.

They noticed the construction industry has remained static for decades and projects are consistently not delivered on time or budget. With intelligent software, nPlan has started to change the fundamentals of the industry and improve the outcomes for all stakeholders.

Over the next year, nPlan is set to grow its team and develop its tech for new markets, including an insurance product to cover clients on project overruns. Having already worked with some of the biggest construction and infrastructure companies in the world, including Network Rail and Google, the company completed its Series A at the start of 2021 with GV as its lead investor.
