MIAMI, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Rokk3r Fuel ExO has invested $500,000 in construction technology company Eyrus. The bridge fundraising round brings Eyrus’ total funding to date to more than $3 million, and grows the Rokk3r Fuel portfolio to a total of seven companies.
Founded in 2015 in Washington, D.C., Eyrus set out to address obstacles that have historically prevented construction projects to progress efficiently and within scheduled timeframes, from gaps in communication among contractors and subcontractors to process reporting delays. The Eyrus platform, conceptualized by co-founders experienced in engineering, construction and architecture, provides workforce intelligence through on-site trade resource data and project analytics in real time. To date, Eyrus has delivered its partners more than $25 million in cost savings, in addition to collectively sparing over 80,000 management hours.
“Rokk3r Fuel was founded with the goal of empowering innovators whose ideas have the potential to shift paradigms and improve industries at scale, effectively changing the lives of millions. Eyrus is a perfect fit for our portfolio,” said Rokk3r Fuel managing director Jeff Ransdell. “The construction industry is long overdue for a ‘software update,’ and Eyrus is primed to singlehandedly overhaul the sector.”
The capital injection provided by Rokk3r Fuel will enable Eyrus to hire new staffers across sales and marketing divisions, among other scaling measures, further extending Eyrus’ reach across the fast-growing contech space. New product releases within the Eyrus platform are also among growth measures expected for the coming months.
“We are pleased to formalize our relationship with Rokk3r Fuel,” said Alexandra McManus, co-founder and CEO of Eyrus. “Their deep experience helping founders maneuver and master IoT and data analytics in ambitious problem-solving endeavors aligns with Eyrus’ long-term strategy to transform the construction marketplace. This partnership will streamline our trajectory and deeply enhance our value to current and future partners.”
Eyrus COO and co-founder Hussein Cholkamy echoed McManus. “The partnership and funding provided by Rokk3r Fuel will expedite the deployment of the next generation of Eyrus products. We are excited about this opportunity.”
