Lau­ren Lake and Mal­lo­rie Brodie

BRIDGIT

Toronto Life - - Tech Boom -

Three years ago, Lau­ren Lake and Mal­lo­rie Brodie were paired to­gether in the Next 36, a start-up men­tor­ing pro­gram. For their project, they in­ter­viewed con­struc­tion work­ers and con­trac­tors about their on-the-job gripes. The num­ber one re­sponse: poor com­mu­ni­ca­tion about what needed to get done on-site. To fix that, the duo cre­ated Bridgit, an app that cen­tral­izes and dig­i­tizes all the tasks that would oth­er­wise be scrawled on site plans and to-do lists. In­vestors from across the con­ti­nent have al­ready poured $2.2 mil­lion into the plat­form.
