Join Us in Revolutionizing the Construction Industry 

Parspec is transforming how $5 trillion in construction products are sold annually around the world by digitizing and structuring the industry’s product data. We are building a digital platform that helps buyers to quickly identify the right products for their project and helps sellers to generate new leads and close deals faster. These benefits are enabled by proprietary web scraping, computer vision and AI technology. 

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, our mission is to improve the affordability and sustainability of the built environment by bringing greater efficiency and transparency to the construction supply chain. We have raised over $3M USD in seed financing from notable investors including Innovation Endeavors (founded by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt) and Heartland Ventures, and are currently operating in stealth mode while we Beta test our flagship product with ten industry-leading firms. Our public product launch is planned for early 2022.

Over the next 18 months we will expand our world-class engineering, product and sales teams to drive significant market penetration of our product in five major metropolitan markets across the U.S. We invite you to be at the forefront of the digital transformation of the construction industry.
