Field Materials, a San Jose, CA-based AI software startup with a bold vision to disrupt the $2 trillion global market of construction material purchasing, raised $4.65 million in seed funding to disrupt the construction material purchasing market.
The round was led by Blumberg Capital with participation from Zacua Ventures and joined by prominent industry executives including Mike Amend (CDO at Ford Motor Company, former SVP of Lowe's Companies, Inc., and former VP of The Home Depot) and Arnold Goldberg (GM of Payments at Google).
Field Materials’ web and mobile apps streamline the purchasing process across the entire lifecycle of a construction project, from requesting quotes during pre-construction to managing orders and deliveries to the construction site.
The software digitizes workflows that were traditionally done in Excel, email, and paper. It eliminates errors and delays in projects through AI-powered checking of delivery slips and invoices as well as automation of notifications and reminders.
