GET A PIECE OF THE BUILDCLUB
The BuildClub has demonstrated significant growth and market traction. Since their launch a short 2 years ago, BuildClub has completed 5,000 deliveries of over 240,000 items. With 50,000 users registered on their website, 300,000+ website visitors per month and 10,000 active customers, say goodbye to traffic and the long lines at home improvement stores.
According to recent data, the U.S. construction category is a $250B industry and within this sector, there is a $9B addressable “need it now” market. Additionally, the industry is composed of more than 680K employers, with over 7M employees, responsible for nearly $1.3T in new construction projects each year.
The BuildClub’s CEO and founder, Stephen Forte, possesses a level of industry experience that is rare in the startup space. Throughout his career he has cultivated an extensive background in B2B supply chain logistics, mobile apps and software, with 15 awarded. Managing public and private companies with operations in 63 countries, Forte has executed meaningful exits from multiple tech enterprises, and led P&Ls from startups to over $1B.

The BuildClub’s mission is to liberate contractors and homeowners from the inefficiency of sourcing building supplies and materials. Providing a disruptive alternative to home improvement stores and wholesale houses, we offer same-day, on-site delivery, at the click of a button, and at a highly competitive price point. Since launching, we have been on the fast-track for growth, setting the stage for expansion into 15 additional cities in 2023. The BuildClub has raised $4M in funding from over 40 CEOs in the construction, building materials, finance venture, and manufacturing sectors in addition to venture capital and a $5b construction company.
The BuildClub was created to offer an intelligent tech-based sourcing solution for building materials and home improvement supplies. On our online platform, everyone from homeowners to contractors can skip the trip and have everything delivered directly, so they never have to waste time traveling off-site or shopping around for the best price.
From roofing and lumber to plumbing and electrical materials, our AI algorithms aggregate the buying process – scanning over 15M products per day in 14 cities, from 225 suppliers – allowing us to find the best possible price and pass additional savings on to our customers.
The problem & our solution
Before The BuildClub, sourcing and acquiring building materials meant traveling to multiple big box outlets and specialty stores. It’s also been our observation that the market offers very few options for getting materials delivered quickly. At the job site, contractors typically have to work with multiple vendors and receive items on a staggered timeline, which costs valuable time and creates overly complicated logistics.
In order to overcome these inefficiencies, what The BuildClub has developed is a one-stop-shop solution, with the capability to source all materials and expedite delivery on-demand. As a result, contractors are able to stay on the job site, doing what they do best, and our DIY customers have more free time to complete projects without ever leaving home. Regardless of the size and scope of your project, The BuildClub will deliver exactly what you need, when and where you need it, and all at the same price or less than traditional suppliers.
The company has received multiple recognitions within our industry. In 2022 The BuildClub was chosen by Suffolk Construction – a $6B construction company – to be part of its BOOST program cohort, receiving an investment from Suffolk.
And in 2023, we were selected by Cemex Ventures as one of the top 50 ConTech startups (source).
The Market & Our Traction
The BuildClub launched in March 2021 and in just under two years, we have tripled our annual revenue to over $3M, converting 10,000 contractors and homeowners into loyal customers. We have completed over 5,000 transactions, delivering over 240K items and our services have earned The BuildClub over 150 5-star Google customer reviews. Today, the site has nearly 50K registered users, and continues to grow, attracting as many as 400K unique visitors each month.
The BuildClub has successfully introduced its scalable model in California, Nevada, and Arizona, and is now on track to launch in 15 additional cities, tracking over 200M building material products per day in 30 metro areas nationwide. In addition to geographic growth we plan to expand our business segments with large contractors and government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense.

Building on our own model for success and scaling our national footprint, The BuildClub will soon be expanding nationwide in 15 additional metropolitan markets, and we believe as our volume grows, so will our margins. With support from funding, next steps for the company include developing a subscription model, piloting enterprise offerings, and enhancing our platform’s capabilities to include more customer-facing software tools.
Although The BuildClub has a coveted term sheet from a Silicon Valley venture firm, we want to partner with our customers, contractors, home owners and DIY pros and we’re excited to have you be a part of our big plans. Become an investor with us today!

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
