Harbr raises $1.75 million to help construction companies predict their schedule


Halifax-based Harbr has raised a $1.75 million to fuel growth of its platform providing scheduling data for construction companies.

The startup also announced the launch of its new real-time construction scheduling product. Super Schedule, driven by the companion field reporting mobile app, creates a live project schedule by combining estimations, real-time progress, and field data directly from the job site.

Through investors, Harbr says it has access to markets in the US and Canada.

Harbr provides predictive scheduling and intelligence for construction companies to help them stay on time and budget. The platform facilitates communication between workers and provides insights like the completion rate of projects and issue tracking.

The round includes angel and venture capital investors including Jevon MacDonald, George Armoyan, Frank Sobey, John Risley, Mark Dobbin of Killick Capital, David Dufresne of Panache Ventures, Gavin Uhma, Don Clow, Jim Spatz, Dan Flaminio, Wade Dawe, Joe Fiander, Victor Kielbratowski, and Innovacorp.

“At Harbr, we believe that construction and technology must coexist in a way that creates purposeful and thoughtful user experiences which form the basis of industry re-defining and world-beating products,” said Harbr co-founder and CEO Dave Kim. Kim and Uhma were co-founders of GoInstant, which sold to Salesforce for over $70 million in 2012.

“We are overwhelmed to see that some of the most influential individuals in technology, construction and real-estate across North America believe in that vision too.”

With this round, Harbr says it has access to major markets in the US and Canada.

“Committed to exceptional growth in the Atlantic Canadian ecosystem, Harbr’s very capable team is creating world-class cutting edge technology which could have huge impacts for construction and real-estate industries across the globe”, said Clow, president and CEO at Crombie REIT and one of Harbr’s investors.
