A lot goes into creating a company and a lot more goes into creating a company that endures. There are long days and even longer nights, hiccups along the way, and a sense of trust that can last a lifetime.
Today, I’m incredibly thankful and excited to share that everyone’s efforts have contributed to where we are today – announcing a $40 million round of financing!
The team has worked countless hours since we went to market in 2009 to make our vision of democratizing data analytics, a reality. I’ve been fortunate to work with the best and the brightest — people who are passionate about helping everyone get access to data analytics so they can solve some of the world’s biggest problems. We’ve had friends who spent their last years with us building a company that can help shape the world into a better place.
I’m humbled by the trust and support we’ve received from our customers. We’ve had a chance to work with amazing companies and I am constantly blown away by what they want to accomplish next using our technology. I truly appreciate that our investors – ST Telemedia, Top Tier Capital Partners, Next World Capital, Redpoint, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Software AG and Citi Ventures – recognize our market leadership and understand the importance of empowering anyone with a need for the truth to find it through data analytics.
So where will the new investment take us? We’ll be focusing on expanding globally, with an eye toward APAC and Latin America as well as additional investment in our existing teams. I’m looking forward to continuing our growth and building a long-term, sustainable company that consistently provides value to our customers.
Our vision has been the same since day one – to make big data analytics easy for everyone. Today, I’m happy to say we’re still where we want to be. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the journey.
