Singapore-headquartered construction management and data analytics startup Hubble has entered into a strategic partnership and raised an undisclosed sum in funding from Malaysian PE firm OSK Ventures International.
“Besides bringing on board a well-known financial investor, we look at OSK Group as a valued partner for our growth in Malaysia. We will leverage on the extensive and deep relationships of OSK that are relevant to our business. The team at OSKVI shares similar values with us and our investors in terms of working the ground, and are helping us on operational areas, such as talent growth and the setting up of our new venture in Malaysia,” said Hubble Founder and CEO Lin Shijing.
Beyond Singapore and now Malaysia, Hubble is embarking on plans to enter into more markets across Southeast Asia and Australia.
Hubble’s software solution automates the entire range of construction processes on-site that have traditionally been accomplished mostly via manual processes. By tracking, optimising, and automating the management of the projects’ workforce, cash flows, materials and equipment. Hubble helps constructors improve productivity, safety, and ultimately, their bottom line.
Hubble is also the official partner of Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA) for the development and implementation of the BuildSG-COVIDSafe platform, which is the national technology initiative to enable the safe restart of construction sites during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
