Bridgit was founded in 2014 by entrepreneurs Lauren Lake and Mallorie Brodie. Having each grown up in the construction industry, they saw an opportunity to continue the family tradition — but with a modern approach.
Bridgit Field was built from the ground up to make construction projects less complicated, and finish faster. With a focus on the field, the app simplifies communications across all people, increases accountability and visibility, and improves quality.
Bridgit Bench is our most recent product, designed to eliminate the headaches (and spreadsheets!) of managing construction workforce and planning projects.

Through working on construction sites as an engineering student, she became well-versed in communication and workflow methods.
