BUILD1x Founder, Trac Stephenson, says, “There are literally millions of construction professionals that face challenges on a daily basis which limit their ability to perform and grow their business. Technology has ignored them… until now. BUILD1x is a mobile platform developed specifically for construction professionals to help them better find job opportunities, communicate better on existing projects, and get loans as well as accept payments fast reducing unnecessary costs. “As a contractor, I know the pain of predatory loans, finding talent and getting paid faster, so I had our team build a all in one solution.”

All of that comes together to create the BUILD1x ecosystem and platform.I joined the team because this is a disruptive fintech that will make a difference in millions of construction workers' lives.”

They work in rain, snow, cold, extreme heat and never once demand respect. So when we say,
