Monograph, a practice operations platform for design professionals, today announced a $7.4 million Series A round of funding led by Index Ventures with continued participation from existing investors Homebrew, Parade Ventures, Designer Fund, and several angel investors. Monograph is the most robust industry-specific platform that empowers AEC professionals to better serve their clients, design great built environments, as well as operate a more collaborative, transparent, and profitable business. The investment brings Monograph’s total funding to $9.3 million and will help the company expand its engineering and design teams to continue delivering valuable tools that advance the architect’s toolkit and support connected workflows. Nina Achadjian, Partner, Index Ventures will join Monograph’s Board of Directors.
“Some of the world’s largest sectors are increasingly demanding software built specifically for their needs,” said Nina Achadjian, partner at Index Ventures. “The AEC industry is no exception. The Monograph team is able to use their firsthand architecture experience to build the best solution for AEC professionals, and we are thrilled to be their partner.”
Founded by three design technologists with backgrounds in architecture—Robert Yuen, Alex Dixon, and Moe Amaya—Monograph is intuitively designed for architecture, design, engineering, and construction professionals to oversee projects, timesheets, and forecasts in one simple and integrated interface. The cloud-based system equips industry leaders with top-of-the-line digital tools to manage their firms while transparently collaborating on complex projects with multiple stakeholders. To date, Monograph’s platform has helped manage over $335 million in projects of all scales.
“Design professionals are underserved by existing technology solutions,” said Robert Yuen, co-founder and CEO of Monograph. “The architecture industry is broken and Monograph is strategically positioned to help fix it. We’re disrupting the status quo by ridding firms of ineffective spreadsheets and tools that treat cost, resource, and project management as siloed activities. Our platform is a modern-day solution that syncs a firm’s range of projects and responsibilities holistically so that AEC professionals can provide a great client experience, and most importantly make a profit.”
