by Kay Aloha Villamor in August 18th, 2023

Acelab, a New York-based architecture-based online platform that connects architects and manufacturers, raised $5.3 million in funding to continue building out its intelligent building supplies search platform for his fellow architects.

 The round was led by Pillar VC, PJC, and Draper Associates, with participation from Alpaca, Steve Kaufer (Founder and former CEO of TripAdvisor), Erik Jarnryd (Former CEO of Harvey Building Products), Transcend Partners, Branagh Construction, Ken Lang, Klingenstein Fields, and Westview PE Fund.

“With building products being in the hundreds of thousands, it’s simply impossible for any architect or contractor to know about all of them,” Vardhan Mehta CEO of Acelab wrote to VentureBeat in an email. “But every construction project is atypical in nature – due to code requirements, budget constraints, project location or client needs. Acelab machine learning (ML)-powered search engine is the brain of the platform. It gathers all relevant info from the architect, collates it with our proprietary database, and returns the strongest fits through an easy-to-use interface.”
