Billd

katz@billd.com

Billd and ASA have joined to fix the fundamentally broken payment cycle in the construction industry. Subcontractors are sandwiched between poor payment cycles and a lack of credit options where they sit at the bottom of the payment stream. Billd addresses this issue head on, championing the costs of materials and giving subcontractors the terms they need to take on larger projects and grow their business. Billd’s project-based material financing solution works like this: We pay your supplier upfront, then extend you pay-when-paid, or up to 120-day terms so you can take control of your cash flow.
