At our 2022 Buildings Conference, we were fortunate enough to sit down with the CEO of ToolBelt, Josh Engelbrecht. We discussed what he’s most excited about for his business and an outlook of the construction industry.
ToolBelt is an efficient way for laborers to be connected to jobs that they are most suited for. Engelbrecht told us that he thought the old way of skilled laborers finding jobs was frustrating. ToolBelt expedites the convoluted process of finding those jobs by allowing general contractors to connect with the qualified individuals necessary to help them complete their projects.
Engelbrecht talks about how he’s been impressed with the growth at ToolBelt – not only in the business itself, but the staff that’s helping to drive the company forward. Being in a labor specific startup, Engelbrecht says that he’s taken pride in watching his staff be able to develop and grow alongside the business and credits them for the success the company has seen.
ToolBelt has managed to grow a great business model that’s being helped largely by in-house referrals of companies that have used their services in the past and continue to come back.
Q4 begins a 12 months journey where ToolBelt will be launching nationwide in the top construction markets. This launch will allow ToolBelt to establish marketplaces that will connect east to west for construction in the residential sector. The rapid user base and revenue growth has caught the eye of many prop tech investors that look to join ToolBelt on their nationwide campaign.
Engelbrecht presented ToolBelt as part of the Buildings Conference Demo Day Challenge where the company was able to take home first prize after impressing the judges panel. Engelbrecht credits BuiltWorlds with allowing him to be in a room of like-minded individuals who fully understand what his company is trying to achieve – something that he’s struggled to find in the past.
