Construction technology startup BRKZ has secured $8m in a Series A funding round, aimed at transforming the building materials sector in Saudi Arabia and the broader Middle East and North Africa region. 

Co-led by 9900 and BECO Capital, the funding round saw participation from Aramco’s Wa’ed Ventures, Knollwood Investment Advisory, RZM Investment, and MISY Ventures.  

BRKZ has raised a total investment of $13.55m, following its initial seed round of $5.55m led by Better Tomorrow Ventures, with contributions from Class 5 Global, Knollwood Investment Advisory, Plus VC, and various strategic Saudi angel investors. 

With this capital injection, BRKZ intends to enhance its proprietary technology and become a comprehensive one-stop shop for the construction industry. 

The startup seeks to use technology to provide access and opportunities for contractors and to create a tech-enabled ecosystem. 

BRKZ was founded in 2022 by Ibrahim Manna to tackle issues in the construction industry such as fragmented supply chains, operational inefficiencies, and limited access to financial resources.
