The construction optioneering platform ALICE will utilize the funding to boost hiring, global growth, product innovation, and sales and marketing expansion. ALICE’s platform is in use by contractors, namely Bouygues, Kajima, and Skanska, to help them plan and manage complex projects such as bridges, tunnels, high speed rail systems and mixed-use towers.

This is a distinctive, high-growth business led by a uniquely qualified team, and we’re excited to support ALICE’s growth and success,” said Vanedge Capital’s managing partner, Paul Lee, in a press release.
