A BIT ABOUT US
Every year in the United States, we waste more than 40% of usable construction and demolition materials, yet 1.6 billion people in the world suffer from housing insecurity. We believe the solution to this issue is simple: Put waste in the right place. Menara is a visual recognition technology platform that allows businesses to save time and money by connecting construction and demolition companies with developing communities that lack resources. By allowing users to snap a picture of their waste with a smart device, Menara uses visual recognition technology to match the user-generated image with communities that have suffered from poor housing infrastructure, earthquakes, floods, or other disasters and need materials to rebuild. Menara also tracks the materials from pickup to donation, delivering real-time social and environmental impact reporting analytics.
