Arrival of Google in Dataiku’s capital
After a new fundraising in December 2013, the value of the French start-up increased and passed the billion-dollar bar, Dataiku thus accessing the status of unicorn.
If Dataiku achieved this performance, it is in large part due to the equity investment from CapitalG, Google’s investment fund, which bought out the shares held by Serena, another private equity firm.
The amount raised is not disclosed, but the company is now valued to $1.4 billion.
Dataiku is a start-up created in 2013, which offers other companies some solutions to exploit their data. The collaborative aspect of the platform also allows specialists to develop and produce their own data products. With this fundraising, the company, now based in the United States, hopes to democratize data science and access to artificial intelligence.
Among its customers (more than 300!), there are, for example, BlaBlaCar and Vente-Privée.
