Personal Story

I have lived and worked in New York for the last 20 years, focused on developing technology with a social purpose. Some of my early ventures included an e-commerce hub for companies who sold products using solely renewable materials. I helped to build one of the first free email services in the mid ’90s, and used this service as a way to spread this message of sustainability. We garnered over 65,000 subscribers at its peak. My last venture I helped to develop and deploy an online dashboard to control heating systems across 4,000 buildings in NYC. Through this platform, building owners and operators were able to prevent wasteful overheating in their buildings, saving energy and ultimately reducing harmful CO2 emissions, while saving over 20% on their fuel costs.

Today I am focused on taking technology and sustainability to the next level by merging Building Management Systems (BMS) with the Internet of Things (IoT). Wireless and online technologists are now at a place where wireless and battery less end node devices can communicate to the cloud enabling the powerful ability to create adaptive environments where waste can just about be eliminated. Systems like the Nest thermostat make sense on a micro scale to save energy, but when used in an ecosystem of devices that can enhance automation and control to impact larger building systems, the ability to build sustainable, net zero buildings becomes a reality.

Business Description

Sentient Buildings focuses on developing systems, infrastructure and technology to enable the next generation of “Smart Buildings”. Our goal is to eliminate waste in commercial and multifamily apartment buildings by developing and packaging systems that control HVAC, Lighting and plug load for optimal use.

One project we were particularly passionate about was the Starrett-Lehigh Building. We currently work in the building and were proud to work on making it more energy efficient. It’s rewarding to come into the building every day and be reminded of the work we’ve done.

Our customers are real estate owners and operators who are interested in controlling their energy costs while maximizing the ability to deliver comfort to their tenants.

Our unique wireless infrastructure connects battery-less wireless end node devices such as occupancy sensors, thermostats, radiator valve actuators and lighting relays to a central system that learns from occupant behavior and insures that energy use is fully aligned with actual usage patterns.

What is the purpose of this loan?

We need to purchase inventory ahead of our installations. This will help manage cash flow so that we can take on new projects and acquire necessary materials ahead of time to deliver on projects on schedule. We have several projects where materials need to be purchased, but payment terms to the customer are net 30.
