Pillar Technologies Is Wentworth Accelerate’s First Startup to Secure Outside Seed Funding
Names and Faces: The richest sports, entertainment, and media moguls in Massachusetts:
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft tops the list, with a net worth of $4.8 billion. In second place is cable TV pioneer Amos B. Hostetter, and in third place is Red Sox principal owner (and Boston Globe owner) John W. Henry.
Pillar Technologies Is Wentworth Accelerate’s First Startup to Secure Outside Seed Funding:
Pillar Technologies, a startup bringing sensor technology to the construction space to enhance risk management, announced it has secured $425,000 in seed funding, making it the first venture coming out of Wentworth Accelerate to close external capital. This seed round included investments from the 1517 Fund and Insure.VC, as well as angel investors Anil Jha and Sam Altschuler.
With on-site sensors, Pillar Technologies allows contractors to keep tabs on their job sites. The sensors can detect hostile conditions on sites that commonly cause companies to lose money during construction projects, like high humidity and fires.
Pillar Technologies will equip contractors with real-time data about the environment at their sites. It sends alerts when conditions become dangerous and offers predictive analytics, so contractors can stay on top of their time and budget allocation. It also benefits insurance companies and property owners, who have a stake in a site’s safety.
