Company officials said the funding will enhance the platform’s AI capabilities, expand its service offerings, and accelerate growth in key markets like California, Texas, Florida, Maryland, and Michigan.

The seed round was led by the Minneapolis-based Community Reinvestment Fund USA, with participation from other investors.

This investment will enable Vehya to further develop its AI technology, which streamlines the scheduling, execution, and management of various services, providing a seamless experience for both consumers and contractors.

Vehya is transforming the way services are delivered to homes and small businesses in fields such as electrification, HVAC, and plumbing. By leveraging AI, the platform automates the entire lifecycle of service management, from initial request to job completion.

“We are thrilled to have the support of investors who share our vision of revolutionizing the service industry,” said William McCoy, CEO and founder of Vehya. “This funding will allow us to enhance our AI technology, ensuring that we continue to provide exceptional value to our users. Our goal is to make the process of hiring professionals for home and business services as easy and reliable as possible with the use of AI.”

Expanding Market Reach

With the new funding, the company plans to expand its market reach, targeting key regions where demand for automated service solutions in electrification and renewable energy systems is growing rapidly. The company aims to onboard thousands of skilled contractors and offer a diverse range of services, including plumbing, HVAC, electrical work, and even drywall repairs. “Through our last 2 years in business, we had many customers ask for our mobile app to help them with other projects. We have since collected many types of service providers, explains William McCoy, CEO of Vehya. Our goal is to help customers with all types of services for their home and business so that we can also help them with their sustainability goals.”
