About Avvir:

We are out to change the way we interact with the built environment. We create and continuously update a digital replica of buildings that serve as the building's system of record. We do this by comparing the 3D design models (known as BIMs) that are created at the outset of a building's construction to laser scans of the ever changing reality. During construction this enables stakeholders to identify construction errors and monitor progress in real time. And once a building is occupied, we enable that digital twin to serve as a platform for the internet of things, integrating data from hundreds of connected sensors in a common data environment.

Avvir is headquartered in New York City and has 10 employees. We have raised over $3 million in financing from top tier investors including Khosla Ventures, Metaprop, and Local Globe. in less than 12 months we've gone from no product to working with companies like Facebook and Exxon Mobil. We also just raised $2.5m in seed capital and are on track to raise a series A within the next 18 months. Our current customers love us. We have an over 90% retention rate.
