A word from Shadow Ventures Founder and General Partner, KP Reddy

The planet is dying, and we are the reason why. If left unchecked, the current pace of nature’s decline will have grave implications for the human race. We stand to face increasing natural disasters, loss of biodiversity, and threats to public health. Waste is the largest contributing factor to this problem. And the built environment is one of the top producers of waste in the world— period.

But innovation can save the planet.

And that’s what led us to start Shadow Summit. 5 years ago, we sought to bring together the leaders, technologies, and conversations that are driving innovation in the built environment. Over two days, we curate an agenda of leading-edge panels and roundtables with a roster of high-caliber speakers from around the world who are leading the largest AEC and Commercial Real Estate firms in the world.

Over the past 5 years, Shadow Summit has grown and evolved far beyond what we ever expected. We have hosted hundreds of executive-level attendees from AEC firms and developers such as Thornton Tomasetti, JB&B, Hensel Phelps, Walter P Moore, HOK, Perkins and Will, Woods Bagot, CBRE, Cortland, Stanford University, Shibumi International, and VINCI and sessions with keynotes from Mark Teixeira (New York Yankees World Series Champion), Michael J. Coles (former CEO of American Cookie Company and Caribou Coffee), and unicorn-startup founders such as Kabir Barday (Onetrust) and Matt Grimm (Andruil).
