Earlier this year, Bridgit raised a $7 million USD strategic investment led by Autodesk to improve resource planning and forecasting for the construction industry. Recently, our two companies launched a formal partnership by way of an integration between Bridgit Bench and BIM 360 or BuildingConnected, BIM 360 login credentials, and BIM 360 Partner Card.
Ahead of Bridgit’s Theater Talk at Autodesk University on Forecasting for Advanced Workforce Planning, our co-founders, Lauren Lake and Mallorie Brodie, sat down with the President and CEO of Autodesk, Andrew Anagnost, to talk about courageous decision making at Autodesk’s company Town Hall.
With Autodesk having recently invested in Bridgit, the conversation also included some insight into how and why this partnership came about, how Bridgit got started in construction technology, and Autodesk’s decision to continue investing in construction technology during a global pandemic.
