PlanGrid celebrated its 4th birthday this month. I’m proud of what our team has built together: a product that our users love, and a culture of humanity. We are a company that cares deeply about people who work in the construction industry. We believe that builders are some of the hardest working people in the world, and that they deserve good software. Every minute PlanGrid saves our users in the field equates to another minute they can spend with their families.
We’ve accomplished a lot since 2011: PlanGrid is now the largest digital blueprint repository in the world, with over 30 million sheets of construction documents in our cloud, and we’ve helped build over 300,000 construction projects. Our construction clients are only just beginning to see what’s possible through our software platform. Despite that, we’ve only made a small step forward and there is still a lot of work to do.
We recently took $40 million in Series B funding from Tenaya Capital, Sequoia, Founders Fund, YC Continuity, and Northgate, to ensure PlanGrid becomes the mobile platform that all construction projects use. As always, our goal is to create great software so that builders can focus on their real work — building.
To everyone who has supported us in these past 4 years: thank you. We would not be able to do this without you. You keep building, and we’ll keep the updates and improvements coming.
PlanGrid is coming to every jobsite in America and around the globe, and we can’t wait.
