Cortex’s History

We started Cortex with the goal of reducing the carbon impact of commercial buildings by creating the fastest and lowest-cost path to decarbonize buildings.

Cortex was founded in 2014 by our CEO Bryan Bennett, after he realized the need for commercial buildings to run more sustainably. He grew up around the CRE industry, as his family has a history of developing commercial real estate. When working as a consultant in the energy technology space, Bryan began to understand the many data points that buildings could use to create more sustainable building operations. After realizing that he could put this data to use, Bryan dedicated his career to developing Cortex. He continues to grow with our team and develop new features within the app to better support our customers.

We currently have over 30 talented people on our team, with a majority of our team working remotely across the country (mostly in the New York, Boston, and Washington D.C. areas) and a handful at our headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee. 

At Cortex, we are dedicated to hiring driven, diverse individuals who want to help us fulfill our mission and preserve our planet.
