Built Technologies Receives Investment From Citi

By Noah Long • Apr 19, 2023

Built Technologies – one of the fastest-growing construction and real estate software providers in the U.S. – announced it has received a strategic investment from Citi through its SPRINT program. Citi SPRINT (Spread Products Investment Technologies), which is the strategic investing arm of Citi’s Global Spread Products division (GSP), is part of Citi Institutional Strategic Investments (ISI).

Built plans to use the investment to accelerate its growth in commercial real estate (CRE) asset management and enable further operational and technological enhancements. And through the utilization of Built’s platform, Citi will have the opportunity to introduce digitization solutions to other lenders, developers, and borrowers in the ecosystem.

Citi Community Capital, another business in GSP, offers a suite of financial products to help affordable housing developers construct, rehabilitate, refinance, and acquire multifamily affordable housing across the country. And it has been recognized as the number one affordable housing lender in the United States, according to Affordable Housing Finance magazine’s annual ranking, for twelve consecutive years.

Built Technologies’ software platform streamlines the construction loan administration process by simplifying the management of funds and documentation, allowing lenders to administer their construction loans more efficiently. And the company’s technology enables faster funding decisions and draws while providing real-time transparency and visibility into the status of construction projects through Built’s CRE data model. Over 250 banks and private capital providers use Built’s cloud-based solution to create a centralized system of record and accelerate the flow of capital from lenders to borrowers, contractors, and vendors.


“The investment from Citi SPRINT opens a new market opportunity for Built to gain traction with one of the largest U.S. financial institutions in the real estate industry. Citi SPRINT’s investment is a testament to Built’s vision and the value Built delivers to its customers. The investment presents a unique opportunity, and one that will further accelerate our market reach.”

– Chase Gilbert, CEO and Co-founder of Built
