With a background in interaction design, Joanna believes in a future that still cares about being human.

Savannah de Savary, Founder of Built-ID

At the age of 23 years’ old Savannah de Savary founded Built-ID, a prop-tech start-up, which aims to revolutionise the way property professionals work and collaborate. Whilst working in New York for a property development company, Savannah was responsible for researching the teams behind some of the most amazing and inspiring real estate projects in New York which the company wanted to work with. Savannah discovered this research to be a time-consuming and difficult process as the industry relied on word-of-mouth and personal contacts as opposed to a sharing economy. It was from here that she spotted an opportunity to fill this knowledge gap and the concept of Built-ID was born. In 2015 Savannah set up Built-ID, a digital platform which captures data about the creators of the built environment. It enables users to instantly search, connect and collaborate with talented professionals across the sector.
