At Agora, our mission is to bring the construction industry into the 21st century by making it more efficient and faster to build. Construction is a $10T a year industry that employs more than 200 million people worldwide, but productivity in the industry has barely increased since 1945. To change that, we’ve built a materials management solution that simplified and streamlines how materials – which constitute up to 40% of project costs – are managed. Our product brings field foremen, purchasing teams, and vendors together onto a single platform which improves the transparency and collaboration between them. To date, we’ve raised $11.4M from leading technology investors including 8VC and Index Ventures, and national construction groups including Tishman Speyer and Suffolk Construction, and are now processing over $1M a week in materials orders for contractors all over the country.
