New Zealand-founded Mooven has expanded its horizons to the U.S by opening an office in San Fransisco to lead the company’s global expansion.
The start-up was established in 2017 and the new U.S venture will continue its mission of reshaping economics and how infrastructure is delivered making cities smarter and create community impact.
““There’s an expanding gap between what is being delivered and what is actually needed for transport infrastructure in the United States,” said Mooven CEO and co-founder Micah Gabriels.
“With 43% of the country’s roads in poor or mediocre condition, these challenges cannot be solved by maintaining the status quo. The industry has suffered flat productivity for decades, with other sectors speeding ahead in line with the digital economy.”
Mooven has achieved success in the Australia and New Zealand markets by assisting government authorities and construction companies in implementing smarter ways of working to accelerate the transition to smart cities.
The company does this by giving decision-makers greater access to the right data and contextual awareness, which helps them speed up completing infrastructure projects without disrupting local communities.
Mooven notes that its expansion to the US follows the passing of President Biden’s USD $1 trillion infrastructure bill, which will offer significant stimulus funding and growth for the sector, intending to repair a backlog in transport systems, modernise existing infrastructure and support the move to a clean economy.
The San Francisco branch will be Mooven’s main US office, primarily focusing its efforts on the west coast of North America, with the area frequenting heavier traffic congestion and less developed public transport.
“Our experience in Australia and New Zealand put us in a unique position to export our advanced IP and knowledge to a similar but much larger market,” The CEO added.
“The US, like Australia and New Zealand are unusual in the developed world with large road networks per capita and relatively low public transport usage.”
Taking a step into the U.S market will position Mooven to make a lasting impact on infrastructure and will create a space in which cities are able to thrive.
