Solving the root cause of the climate crisis: poor
planning = unsustainable infrastructure
2
We believe Transcend directly addresses the systemic issues that cause climate
change to build a new foundation for the infrastructure of the future.
Our vision is that TDG will be used by every major stakeholder in ANY critical infrastructure
project; helping them find the root cause of system flaws, unlock engineering bottlenecks,
and press ‘reset’.
By freeing up time and capital for the smartest planning, engineering, and construction
minds, we enable them to evaluate a multitude of critical infrastructure options and
scenarios that focus on sustainability, affordability, and resiliency to build a climate
positive future.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to design our future critical infrastructure
with a refreshed approach and provide equitable access to technologies that can
positively impact the frontline communities who need them the most.
THE PROBLEM THE SOLUTION
• The world's critical infrastructure (water, power,
transportation, buildings) will require $9 trillion in new
investment by 2025 to support the global population.
• Climate change makes it difficult to design & build
infrastructure that can withstand future
unpredictability
• Traditional (manual) design methods are costly and
time-consuming, leading to difficulty in budgeting and
limited ability to innovate and integrate already
existing solutions.
• As a result, our current infrastructure lacks resilience to
repair our broken planet and sustain our quality of life
• Transcend is uniquely positioned to take advantage of
the over $1 trillion in committed government spending
on critical infrastructure to prepare for climate change.
• Transcend's mission is to transform the way
infrastructure is assessed and designed
• Transcend gives capital planners and engineers the
time and resources to evaluate innovative technologies
& sustainable design approaches
• By driving down the costs and resources required in the
preliminary design stage, Transcend will help bring the
infrastructure industry into the 21st Century
Transcend Enables the Infrastructure
Renaissance
“Your grandfather’s slow and
steady infrastructure business
will become one of the most
dynamic businesses on
earth.”

Transforming Infrastructure Design
• Transcend's Design Generator (TDG) is a cloud-
based generative design platform that automates
the preliminary engineering process for critical
infrastructure projects.
• TDG generates professional grade preliminary
engineering documents - 30% of a complete design
- with no human intervention
• The software uses a proprietary data structure and
sustainability focused design methodologies to
complete all required calculations and instruct
EXISTING industry-standard engineering software
tools (simulators, CAD, BIM, etc.) to generate
optimized outputs
• TDG designs are generated faster and with fewer
resources compared to traditional processes,
reducing costs and speeding up project cycles and
freeing up resources to consider more options prior
to setting a project budget.

Be the #1 Player Driving the Change from Manual to
Generative Design in Critical Infrastructure Industries
To generate designs this
complex, we have a
highly advanced tech
stack. We continuously
invest in the core back
end, refactor as we
grow, avoid shortcuts,
and leverage the latest
technologies and
frameworks. Internal
training and learning is
part of our DNA

stakeholders in the
industry
Product development
focused on building
features and functions
that ensure TDG
supports design of
facilities that solve the
MOST pressing
problems faced by
Asset Owners in the
industry
9
Asset Owners/Utilities
- Must consider alternatives
for capital planning of asset
base
- Typically do work in-house
or pay 3rd party engineering
firms
- Key influencer/decision
maker controlling 100s of Mil
or Billions of investment
- Cost for a SINGLE design
option is substantial
- Prefer to consider multiple
alternatives to reduce risk
and maximize ROIC, but this
is cost prohibitive currently
- Highest ROI of any segment,
as they directly own, invest,
& spend $$ in capital
projects
Three Target Customer Segments within Each Vertical
EPCs/Consultants
- Typically hired by Asset
Owners to evaluate options
- Sometimes bill for services
by the hour like a lawyer or
accountant
- TDG fully automates a
portion of the work they bill
for today
- Their industry will be
completely transformed by
generative design, but In
early stages of disruption
- Typically have large IT
budgets for software
(CAD/BIM) to provide value
to their customers
Technology OEMs
- Sell engineered equipment
(membranes, breakers,
etc.) that is key part of a
facility
- Must provide preliminary
design to EPCs/Owners
- Sales engineers are
typically a bottleneck in
sales process
- Leverage TDG to bid on
more projects, faster, with
more detail, at lower cost
- Most interested in the
ACCESS Transcend provides
them directly to owners that
will ultimately buy their
technology/ equipment
10
Substantial ROI for Each Customer Segment
Asset Owners
EPCs OEMs
✓ Spend Billions per Year on design of
infrastructure in the US alone
✓ Must run dozens to hundreds of designs per
year to evaluate options before building
✓ Consistent resource limitations cause
delays and no-bids that result in lost
sales and limit ability to grow
✓ [Supply chain bullet point]
✓ After decades of consolidation amidst
limited competition, generative design
is threatening their business model
✓ Customers are rapidly demanding
outcomes, not billable hours
✓ TDG saves hundreds of hours per
design, allowing them to offer clients
more options/alternatives and make
much higher margins on fixed-bid work

Pitch Deck Teardown: Transcend's $20M Series B deck

  • 1. © Transcend Inc., 2023 info@transcendinfra.com Generative Design SaaS for Critical Infrastructure Investor Presentation 2023 https://www.transcendinfra.com
  • 2. Solving the root cause of the climate crisis: poor planning = unsustainable infrastructure 2 We believe Transcend directly addresses the systemic issues that cause climate change to build a new foundation for the infrastructure of the future. Our vision is that TDG will be used by every major stakeholder in ANY critical infrastructure project; helping them find the root cause of system flaws, unlock engineering bottlenecks, and press ‘reset’. By freeing up time and capital for the smartest planning, engineering, and construction minds, we enable them to evaluate a multitude of critical infrastructure options and scenarios that focus on sustainability, affordability, and resiliency to build a climate positive future. We have a once in a generation opportunity to design our future critical infrastructure with a refreshed approach and provide equitable access to technologies that can positively impact the frontline communities who need them the most.
  • 3. THE PROBLEM THE SOLUTION • The world's critical infrastructure (water, power, transportation, buildings) will require $9 trillion in new investment by 2025 to support the global population. • Climate change makes it difficult to design & build infrastructure that can withstand future unpredictability • Traditional (manual) design methods are costly and time-consuming, leading to difficulty in budgeting and limited ability to innovate and integrate already existing solutions. • As a result, our current infrastructure lacks resilience to repair our broken planet and sustain our quality of life • Transcend is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the over $1 trillion in committed government spending on critical infrastructure to prepare for climate change. • Transcend's mission is to transform the way infrastructure is assessed and designed • Transcend gives capital planners and engineers the time and resources to evaluate innovative technologies & sustainable design approaches • By driving down the costs and resources required in the preliminary design stage, Transcend will help bring the infrastructure industry into the 21st Century Transcend Enables the Infrastructure Renaissance “Your grandfather’s slow and steady infrastructure business will become one of the most dynamic businesses on earth.” 3
  • 4. Transforming Infrastructure Design • Transcend's Design Generator (TDG) is a cloud- based generative design platform that automates the preliminary engineering process for critical infrastructure projects. • TDG generates professional grade preliminary engineering documents - 30% of a complete design - with no human intervention • The software uses a proprietary data structure and sustainability focused design methodologies to complete all required calculations and instruct EXISTING industry-standard engineering software tools (simulators, CAD, BIM, etc.) to generate optimized outputs • TDG designs are generated faster and with fewer resources compared to traditional processes, reducing costs and speeding up project cycles and freeing up resources to consider more options prior to setting a project budget. 4
