Join Us in Revolutionizing the Construction Industry
Parspec is transforming how $5 trillion in construction products are sold annually around the world by digitizing and structuring the industry’s product data. We are building a digital platform that helps buyers quickly identify the right products for their project and helps sellers to generate new leads and close deals faster. These benefits are enabled by proprietary technology, including advanced web scraping, computer vision, and AI. Our mission is to improve the affordability and sustainability of our built environment by bringing greater efficiency and transparency to the construction supply chain.
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, we have raised over $4M in seed financing from notable investors including Innovation Endeavors (founded by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt) and Heartland Ventures. We are currently Beta testing our flagship product with ten industry-leading firms and plan to emerge from stealth in early 2022 for our public product launch. Over the next 18 months, we will expand our world-class engineering, product, and sales teams to drive significant market penetration of our product in five major metropolitan markets across the U.S.
We invite you to be at the forefront of the digital transformation of the construction industry.
