Lauren Lake and Mallorie Brodie
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.
