BuildZoom, a San Francisco, CA-based intelligent marketplace for remodeling and construction services, raised $2.15M in seed funding.
The round was led by Formation 8, with participation from other investors.
The company intends to use the funds to invest in data science, engineering and customer support operations in their San Francisco office.
Led by Jiyan Wei and David Petersen, BuildZoom operates a marketplace for remodeling and construction services. The company has collected data and analysis on more than 3.5 million licensed contractors along with the building permits for over 50 million construction projects nationwide. Homeowners can find the contractor best suited for their project, view a comprehensive profile that includes their work history, project photos, and customer reviews, and then hire them right on the site.
Beyond Formation 8, BuildZoom’s investors include Y Combinator, Streamlined Ventures, Goldcrest Investments, Hydrazine Capital, Signatures Capital, DV Playground, Pankaj Shah and other angel investors.
