Nexii is a manufacturer of modular building systems. The business system and material, Nexiite, is a sustainable alternative to conventional concrete. It cuts construction waste to near-zero, slashes carbon emissions, and accelerates delivery schedules. Nexii claims that buildings it constructs have 31% less embodied carbon than conventional construction materials.
The funding round was led by Horizon Technology Finance Corporation and Trinity Capital. “Since our original commitment last year, Nexii has made significant strides within the construction industry through its innovative, efficient, and environmentally conscious building solutions, positioning it well to further expand its operations,” said Gerald A. Michaud, president of Horizon. Money raised will be used for the acceleration of Nexii’s growth and manufacturing capacity to meet the demand for sustainable construction solutions
