The round, which brings Built’s total funding to $55 million, was led by a big name in capital: Goldman Sachs Investment Partners. The round also featured existing investors Index Ventures and Nyca Partners, as well as Regions Bank, Canapi Ventures and Nine Four Ventures.

“Built’s technology platform has demonstrated a strong value proposition to borrowers and lenders alike by streamlining the overall construction loan process, while at the same time increasing transparency,” said Christopher Dawe, co-head of Goldman Sachs Investment Partners Venture Capital and Growth Equity team. “We are excited to partner with Built and help the company maintain its leadership position within the industry.”
