AI-Enabled Briq Raises Next Round Despite Investor Focus on InfraTech

While times are uncertain for startups looking to raise capital in the AEC industry, infrastructure technology has been a relatively sure bet for investors and one that extensively propelled built-world venture capital funding to another record year in terms of inflows.

Nonetheless, AI-enabled companies are also receiving considerable attention. Briq, a platform that uses AI to automate business workflows, was the most recent illustration of this with the recent announcement that they raised an additional $8M Series B+ extension, on top of their initial $30M Series B announced on in 2021.

BuiltWorlds members Blackhorn Ventures, which co-led the round, and MetaProp, whose CEO Aaron Block is set to join Briq's board, participated in Briq's $8M Series B+, and continue to be active participants and engaged members of the BuiltWorlds ecosystem. In fact, Blackhorn Ventures, MetaProp, and Briq are all set to speak at BuiltWorlds' 2024 Venture West Conference in San Francisco, CA (April 3-4).

As it happens, a third BuiltWorlds member, the Nemetschek Group, has recently announced that they, too, invested in Briq.
