A little bit about us


We build technology for the construction ecosystem. Our mission is to connect built world networks.

Today, we work with emerging retail brands that are scaling up their brick-and-mortar strategy as well as established brands who are expanding and refreshing concepts at scale.

Through machine learning and an owner-oriented work management utility, our mission is digitizing the construction industry forging a path to realizing overĀ $1.7 Trillion in construction productivity waste.

Harbr supports diversity and equal opportunity in a very serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We are certain the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. Our company's philosophy regarding gender parity has been endorsed by our clients, investors, and supporters as well as the construction, tech and business communities.
