Anna Cheniuntai

After earning her bachelor’s degree in Space Physics in 2014, Anna made a leap to entrepreneurship and joined construction and industrial machinery manufacturing ventures run by her future co-founder of Apis Cor, Nick Cheniuntai. Working side by side with Nick, at 22, Anna had successfully managed a massive $6m project to construct and deploy the ground navigation system at the Olympic Games in 2014. This experience became a turning point for Anna and Nick, recognizing the construction industry was in desperate need of automation. Together, they founded Apis Cor, a construction technology company that builds state-of-the-art 3D printing robots for full-scale construction. Today, Apis Cor works with D.R. Horton, the largest national homebuilder in the USA, holds a Guinness World Record for the largest 3D printed building on Earth, is a finalist of NASA’s 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, and is backed by Alchemist Accelerator and At One Ventures, VC focused on investing in a world where humanity becomes a net positive to nature. Apis Cor is proud to have more than 2,000 investors through equity crowdfunding who believe in Apis Cor’s mission and technology. Anna has also contributed her insights on 3D printing in construction as a TEDx speaker.

In addition to running a construction tech company, Anna founded the STEM Access Foundation, focusing on promoting STEM education as well as sourcing laptops for those in need to continue their education. Anna’s foundation delivered 62 laptops to kids in Ukraine and Uganda and to refugees in Kenya.
