What we're tackling 🪵
Rundoo exists to improve the marketplace for building materials. There are ~$1,000,000,000,000 of building materials bought every year in the US (a full 5% of US GDP is just transacting materials!), and the vast majority of these transactions happen over the phone or in-person and then live in 40-year-old point-of-sale (POS) systems. We aim to bring all these transactions online, thereby making it safer and more efficient to build.
