Savannah De Savary, BuiltID: bringing planning power to the people

As a young woman working in the construction industry, Savannah De Savary grew frustrated with the inefficiencies she perceived. Despite never intending to start a company, the problems she saw inspired her to find solutions through tech. Inspired by her own experiences she founded BuiltID which democratises the planning and approvals process, bringing power to the people by methods as inclusive as possible. She's also championing diversity in a characteristically monoculture industry.
