It’s a resource you can trust

Our lack of bias is built right into the Nexus Labs business model. The low price and lack of sponsors mean the business doesn’t depend on any single member, company, perspective, or technology. And it most certainly doesn’t depend on maintaining the status quo. 🙌

You can learn with us

If you’re like me and you want more in-depth content, the kind that actually helps us do our jobs better, deep dives are written for you. Our SME workshops are designed for you.

Understand the marketplace

Members get access to the ever-evolving Nexus Vendor Landscape, our database covering the smart building marketplace. If you’re a vendor trying to stay differentiated, this will help. If you’re a building owner or you serve building owners, this will help.

Meet other smart building changemakers

Pro members attend exclusive events held over Zoom. The goal is to pull our industry’s changemakers together once or twice per month and see what we can accomplish together. So far, it’s working! See testimonials below.

Understand diverse perspectives

The Pro community is made up of buyers of smart building tech, technology and service providers, engineers, and consultants. Learning from each other is invaluable.

It’s a business expense

Finally, let’s be honest… this is a business expense. Most of you can just put this on your expense report. And at $35/month or $350/year, it costs a fraction of research reports that don’t check all of the boxes above.

meet the team

Hi there, I'm James!

I'm the founder and CEO of Nexus Labs.

Nexus is rooted in my engineering background. We cut through the fluff to what's real. We don't believe in tech for tech's sake—we believe in leveraging technology to solve real problems. That said, the status quo is unacceptable and we believe in driving change. Addressing the climate crisis requires the ambition to completely reimagine and rebuild our built environment. At Nexus, we challenge ourselves—and our partners—to act boldly and innovate quickly.

By becoming a Pro Member, you'll join like-minded professionals, learn from each other, and make connections.

Hope to meet you soon!

I'm all signed up! Have been enjoying our thought provoking exchanges both on Nexus as well as LinkedIn. Tremendous amount of value, but particularly in the vendor landscape. I still think there is much confusion and also a lack of clarity as far as capabilities and they way these solutions work "in the wild".
Smart building technology pioneer
Our organization enjoys reading your Deep Dives and finds them very insightful. In particular, I took your Deep Dive on antifragility as motivation and implemented several changes through our departments. They are all engaged and working to ensure we exit the COVID-19 crisis in a stronger position than we entered it. Thank you!
