We help your workforce get home safely & bring certainty to projects.

Construction is a trillion-dollar industry with a GDP of 6% and employs 150 million workforces globally. Kwant was born in 2019 with the mission to provide digital transparency to every construction jobsite - connecting each data node which includes the workforce, materials, and assets to improve safety and productivity.

After working in 8 different countries and 6 continents, Co-founder and CEO, Niran Shrestha teamed up with CTO, Tim Axness who brings in 20 years of hardware experience to tackle some of the biggest problems we face today in construction.

“Kwant” originates from the combination of our love of “quants” representing quantum physics and the construction industry.  We are pushing the boundaries of the industry to take a “Kwantum Leap”, from manual processes and reactive decision making to real-time and data-driven decision making.
