“We’re honored to receive this award,” said Maria Rioumine, CEO and Founder of Kojo. “There has historically been a lack of best-in-class software solutions built for the construction industry, and our team has worked really hard to help fix that.”
Despite being a $10 trillion industry employing 200 million people worldwide, many construction workers still rely on pen and paper to build hospitals, schools, and multi-family housing projects. Since launching in 2018, Kojo has become the leading innovator in materials management for the construction industry. To date, Kojo has powered the construction of nearly 10,000 projects across 46 states and has continued to grow rapidly, most recently growing ARR 3.5x year-over-year.
“Every year, we take pride in assessing the compelling solutions and performance of our candidates. The evolution and progress of submissions go only one way: up,” said Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams. “Every edition of this business software ‘Oscars’ sees progressively exciting innovations as we face the increasing challenges and changes of the modern world.”
