I've checked with Google Translate, but fiddling around with words versus phrases is confusing me because it doesn't seem like this can just be a direct translation.

Alternatively, how would you say "building the future" or "creating the future"? Looking for a motto that conveys that we're shaping (innovating) the future in our space.

"We build the future" would be futurum condimus, or possibly even better futurum facimus. The latter also gets you alliteration, if you're looking for a motto.
