Tough Leaf can be found on Procore’s App Marketplace, which extends the construction management platform’s functionality by enabling users the freedom to connect existing processes and workflows. Tough Leaf offers comprehensive data on qualified Diverse Subcontractors, Engineers, Consultants, Vendors, and Suppliers, enabling Contractors and Developers to seamlessly share their project requirements and receive a list of vetted Diverse Firms.

Tough Leaf's centralized database comprises data about Diverse Companies, including their certifications, NAICS codes, union affiliation, bonding capacity, insurance, yearly revenue, and past projects performed. With the Procore software integration, users can search the database and onboard Diverse Firms to their projects.

Founded at Columbia Business School, Tough Leaf's mission is to empower Diverse Firms to grow their business and enable Contractors and Developers to achieve their diversity goals. To date, Tough Leaf has awarded over $110M to Diverse Firms through the platform, with a goal of increasing awards rapidly to other qualified users.

This is a fantastic platform, I am glad someone is finally doing it. Finally, I do not have to spend hours looking through outdated databases and calling companies that are no longer in business” said Firas Safa, at Restani Construction.
