Soil Connect, a NYC-based digital marketplace focused on the soil and aggregates industry, closed a $3.25m seed funding round.
The round was led by TIA Ventures and Heartland Ventures with participation from CEMEX Ventures, Great Oaks Venture Capital, Situs Real Estate, Altmark Group, AB Investment Group, J.G. Pertucci Company and Bazella Contracting.
The company intends to use the funds to continue building out its team and to introduce new enhancements and features, including a regulatory component that will allow users to keep track of materials from origination to destination.
Led by Cliff Fetner, Founder and CEO, Jonathan Alvarado, Chief Growth Officer, and Berkay Sebat, Head of Mobile, Soil Connect is an institutionally backed digital marketplace focused on solving the high costs and inefficiencies associated with the transport and management of soil, aggregates and other materials. The app connects those who have soil and aggregates with those who need it.
The marketplace offers a streamlined solution for excavators, contractors, developers, landscapers and other building professionals to network and transact with one another while saving time and money and positively impacting the environment.
