Skillit, a New York-based provider of a recruiting platform for full-time construction labor, raised $5.1M in Seed funding. The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth and expand operations building out a team across product development, engineering, customer success and sales. Led by Fraser Patterson, CEO and Founder, Skillit connects the supply of skilled workers with contractor demand in the $1.6T annual construction industry via a platform for sourcing, skills assessment, hiring, training.

It vets workers with proprietary, trade-specific assessments while collecting hundreds of data points to create a taxonomized view of skilled construction labor across the entire employee lifecycle.
