Financial tracking and project delivery company, Northspyre just recently announced a $25 million Series B round of funding. This may sound like a lot of money (and let's be real, it is), but in the multi-trillion dollar construction and development industry, this is just a drop in the bucket. CEO of Northspyre, William Sankey, comes on the show to share why he started Northspyre after working on iconic real estate in New York City. Sankey delves into the massive opportunity for improving project delivery, specific hurdles of the industry, and why AI and automation are key ingredients to bringing a better solution to market.
