Boxcore is a Dublin-based business that helps construction businesses manage safety. The business was founded by Padraig Reilly in 2021 and has eight staff. It has raised €1 million in funding to date.

The Boxcore app is designed to make it easy to capture, share and track on-site safety records. “On any building project, general contractors have to be able to check all of these records for sub-contractors. Typically workers have to photocopy, scan and email these records. It’s a bit of a nightmare to manage,” Reilly told Connected.
