Construction-focused labour hiring platform Project Hero raised $3.2 million in seed led by Ankur Capital and Omidyar Network India where Titan Capital, among other angel investors also participated.
Contractors can use Project Hero to hire and manage construction workers in a variety of categories, such as carpentry, shuttering, and masons. Project Hero will use the funds to expand its technology infrastructure and hire more people across key verticals. The investment will also be used to expand its market presence across the country. The company also provides management software that enables contractors to track employees’ attendance, generate daily wage reports, and pay salaries online. Simultaneously, the platform enables construction workers to track their salaries and access fintech services such as insurance via a mobile app.
