Render started with a simple goal:

Build Networks Better

Built on the need for change

With trillions of dollars being spent on network infrastructure projects around the world, finding new ways to maximize productivity and minimize risk has never been more critical.



New solutions to traditional approaches

With a combination of deep industry knowledge, operational experience and expertise across mathematics and software development, we’ve been able to create an innovative approach to solving the challenges associated with modern infrastructure projects.

Reimagining the rollout of network projects

Through the automation of manual tasks, optimization of resources, and map-based visualization end-to-end, with Render’s construction work management software it is now easier to manage network engineering and construction work.

Render was founded in 2013 by a group of telco, software and mathematics professionals frustrated with the speed and cost of fiber network rollouts.  Their goal was to eliminate complexity and drastically improve efficiency by keeping “the boots on the ground busy”.
