Fund III brings total AUM to $230mm and builds on the firm’s thesis of investing in software and data capabilities that power the built world

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Prudence, an early-stage venture firm investing in technology companies leading the global transformation of the built world, announced the closing of its third fund with $80 million of capital commitments. Founded in 2009, Prudence has been investing in early-stage technology companies for the last 15 years. The firm invests across multiple verticals, including construction, real estate, infrastructure, and climate/energy adaptation.

“We are grateful to our limited partners for their support and confidence in our team and investment thesis,” says Gavin Myers, Managing Partner of Prudence. “We are excited to continue investing behind best-in-class founders who are transforming the built world through the development of advanced software solutions, data infrastructure capabilities, and artificial intelligence applications. Companies in the built environment have pushed the boundaries of what can be accomplished with people and processes, and their futures will be defined by how effectively they can solve pain points with software and automation.”

Prudence has $230mm in assets under management and has invested in industry-leading companies such as Compass (exited: IPO), CREXi, and CASAFARI. Prudence’s latest fund tops the size of their last, a $65mm fund (previously unannounced) raised in 2020, and continues the firm’s strategy of making concentrated, high-conviction investments in early-stage companies with advanced technological capabilities, large market opportunities, and great founding teams. Prudence invests at the Seed to Series B stage and leads or co-leads investment rounds, aiming to invest in 10-15 companies per fund and supporting its founders through active roles as both an investor and board member.

“Our principal focus is investing in and building differentiated, defensible, and durable software businesses,” says Jordan Viniar, a Partner at Prudence. “Founders choose to work with us because of our sector specialization and nuanced understanding of the technical problems they are trying to solve in these large and underdeveloped markets. Our limited partners similarly appreciate that we are experienced technology investors who have developed a specialization in the built world and thus can apply both lenses when evaluating companies.”

Prudence has already made initial investments in its third fund, including AI Clearing, the AI-powered autonomous construction progress tracking and quality control platform; Propexo, the unified API for property management software that enables engineers to launch integrations within days rather than months; and VendorPM, a software platform that modernizes how property managers work with vendors by automating vendor management, sourcing, procurement & compliance.
