Autodesk leads latest investment round in Canadian construction tech start-up Bridgit


A Canadian tech start-up that makes workforce planning software designed specifically for contractors closed out a US$7 million funding round July 14.

Kitchener, Ont.-based Bridgit said the capital injection will help it scale up and build more features into its platform.

“With construction recently restricted and projects delayed, contractors have needed to shift their processes and are demanding the workforce data and insights that Bridgit provides,” Mallorie Brodie, the company’s CEO and co-founder, said in a release. “The new funding will allow us to empower contractors to use their resources effectively, build more efficiently, and with Autodesk, have a more complete picture of people and projects across their organization.”
