Evan Loomis has been a successful entrepreneur for more than nearly 20 years and most notably as the co-founder ICON where he currently oversees business development for the Austin-based startup that develops advanced construction technologies that advance humanity.
ICON has been named one of the "Most Innovative Companies in the World" by Fast Company and is continually setting new standards for delivering resilient, dignified housing at high-speed and lower cost. Raising $59 million to date in funding, ICON has delivered communities of 3D-printed homes in the U.S. and internationally and forged partnerships with world-renowned architects, builders and housing organizations missionally aligned to shift the paradigm of homebuilding. In fall 2020, ICON was awarded a research contract through the Air Force, which included funding from NASA to begin research and development of an off-world construction system planned to support future exploration of the Moon and beyond.
Evan began his career as an Investment Banker on Wall Street. From there, he co-founded Wedgwood Circle, an angel investment group with a focus on the media and entertainment sectors. In 2010, he co-founded TreeHouse, the eco-friendly Home Upgrade Company disrupting the field of home improvement.
In 2017, Evan launched a holding company called Saturn Five with the mission of building companies that matter. Unlike traditional VC firms, Saturn Five designs and launches companies from scratch, working hands-on in the early stages to launch and scale companies.
