“The incredible support from our investors reflects a great deal of confidence in our company and our long-term goals,” he said Doug Vickerson, CEO of Renoworks. “We remain committed to advancing the home remodeling industry while accelerating our growth through the many strategic opportunities ahead. The additional proceeds will be used to drive our revenue growth strategies, form and advance strategic partnerships, expand sales and marketing channels, and hire staff who will further develop the platform.”
Mr. Vickerson continued, “Renoworks is in an unrivaled position in its ability to work as a key strategic partner with key customers and partners in the building products and technology industries. We have many opportunities to collaborate with different players in the market, combining our technologies to create new offerings, improve value chain efficiencies, enhance our partners’ marketability, monetize data assets and expand our reach into new and existing segments to drive our growth and achieve our expansion goals.”
The demand for digital technologies in the field of house conversion and house construction has grown significantly in recent years. In response, Renoworks has developed and commercialized new solutions and add-on services to capitalize on industry momentum toward digital adoption, including data science offerings and platform enhancements.
After years of collecting and analyzing consumer data across the home renovation sector, the company is now able to monetize that data and drive revenue for Renoworks, its partners and customers. Combining this dataset with Renoworks’ machine learning/artificial intelligence technologies allows clients to target and identify potential buyers, increasing lead and sales conversion. This new feature should result in an increase in revenue generated per customer. This funding secures the capital needed to expand the company while it continues to invest in its go-to-market strategy, technology roadmap and other key initiatives.
Proceeds will be used to strengthen the company’s operational efficiencies and support long-term growth by attracting new talent and skilled workers to accelerate key initiatives. Renoworks will also invest in key strategic partner integrations for market expansion.
