Camino Secures $5.9M to Bolster Permitting Platform

As the San Francisco-based company tries to simplify and democratize the process of obtaining permits, it plans to open its platform and make its data and APIs accessible to potential clients and innovators.


Following the close of a $2.4-million seed extension funding round in December, the San Francisco-based Camino is poised to further develop its software that guides citizens through the permitting process.

Chief Strategy Officer Nate Levine said the lead investor was 8VC, followed by Storm Ventures, GovTech Fund, iNovia, Fathom Capital and Sway Ventures. They brought Camino’s total fundraising in 2018 to about $5.9 million, counting the initial seed round that brought in $3.5 million from the same investors.
