Architecture and Design Platform Architizer Raises Additional $2M

With $2 million raised in seed money, New York based startup Architizer aims to make architecture and interiors accessible to everyone. Though they are currently the largest platform for architecture and design online hosting projects with user-uploaded content, according to their chief executive and cofounder Marc Kushner, this latest round of capital will allow them to go after a $200 billion global construction supplies market.

Architizer––which cites Houzz and McGraw Hill as its primary competitors––allows firms to post photos, videos, and project details, then charges construction suppliers a varying monthly fee to link with builders and products.

“Manufacturers are desperate to get their products online,” Kushner said. “Architects from all over the world are telling us ‘Man, you guys have something going on.'”
