HEAD­QUAR­TERS: New York City

FOUNDER: Arnon Rosan (CEO) EM­PLOY­EES: 14

EverBlock Sys­tems started out mak­ing gi­ant mo­du­lar build­ing blocks and in­ter­lock­ing pan­els that turned into walls and floors for offices, class­rooms and mil­i­tary fa­cil­i­ties. Through­out the pan­demic, states and cities from New Jer­sey to New Or­leans have used them to build tem­po­rary hos­pi­tals. Now the five-year-old com­pany is work­ing with schools in New York to con­vert gyms and au­di­to­ri­ums into class­rooms for so­cially dis­tanced learn­ing. De­spite los­ing most of its pre-pan­demic busi­ness, EverBlock ex­pects rev­enue to ex­ceed $20 mil­lion this year, more than three times that of last year. Rosan, 51, has ex­pe­ri­ence in disas­ter re­cov­ery, hav­ing pro­vided mo­du­lar floors for tents built by the Na­tional Guard and FEMA af­ter Hur­ri­canes Ka­t­rina and Sandy.
