We are on a mission

to revolutionize the construction industry through the power of information.

We met in 2013 working on the same team at a construction management firm in New York City. We challenged each other, complemented each other, and had fun innovating in our industry. We dreamed of advancing the industry using technology, for young talent to grow into project managers empowered by data, for executives to have access to data at their fingertips, for directors to make data driven decisions and for enterprise construction technology to be easy to adopt.

We worked together on strategic technology initiatives for large owners in New York City. Together we worked on airports, hospitals, residential towers, commercial developments, and public infrastructure. We successfully implemented both commercially available applications and developed our own software. One thing was always top of mind, the industry is ready and needs AI that helps process the volume of data generated and it must be easy to adopt for users. We started Gryps to provide an amazing product with the best user experience, and to create an environment where young professionals in construction can grow and find a fulfilling career.

Gryps is a construction technology company headquartered in New York City. We are building an AI powered platform that eliminates laborious data entry, extracts information and liberates project data.

We founded Gryps in 2020 after gathering years of experience working in developing and implementing technology applications for owners, construction managers and contractors and the largest projects in New York. Gryps will transform decision-making and empower everyone to be better construction managers.

We are a seed stage company partnering with top investors from both Silicon Valley and New York City to support our mission.
