Startup Showcase: GoMaterials – Hassle-Free B2B Marketplace for Landscape Materials

As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the importance of landscaping is growing. According to IBIS World, the landscaping services industry in Canada has grown 1.8% annually over the past five years and is projected to reach $11.4 billion by 2026. However, procurement has always been a major challenge in the industry, with professional landscapers facing headaches such as poor quality materials, last minute order changes, and late deliveries. GoMaterials was founded to solve these problems and provide a hassle-free B2B marketplace for landscape materials.
