数据管理创企Collibra再获4000万美元风投

近日,总部位于美国纽约曼哈顿的自动化数据管理初创公司Collibra宣布获得一笔4000万美元的风险投资,领投方为ICONIQ Capital,参投方包括多为硅谷大咖,有Facebook创始人马克·扎克伯格、知名投资人杰克·多西、领英创始人里德·霍夫曼和Facebook首席运营官雪莉·桑德伯格。事实上,马克·扎克伯格早在今年一月就参投了该公司5000万美元的C轮融资,目前Collibra公司的融资总金额已经达到了约1.24亿美元。

据解到,Collibra公司主要为企业用户提供数据管理控制解决方案,帮助企业实时追踪自己的数据来源,并且分析数据如何在商业领域里发挥最大作用。事实上,尽管目前很多行业都很重视大数据,但其实很多数据来源、数据可靠性和数据利用率并不好,Collibra 的软件可以将某一组织机构的所有数据编入目录,使搜索更容易,同时更容易保护,同时希望帮助客户可以确切地知道合同条款的定义何时被改变,谁进行了改变,或者公司在报告中使用的特定指标是如何产生的。目前,该公司在全球拥有超过200家企业客户,主要覆盖银行、制造业和医疗保健等领域。

Sky News has learnt that Iconiq Ventures, one of Silicon Valley's most prominent venture capital firms, has agreed to back a funding round for Collibra which values it at €325m (£289m).

The deal, which is expected to close shortly, will increase Iconiq's stake in Collibra nearly a year after it first backed the company.

Iconiq's clients include Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and chief executive of Facebook; Jack Dorsey, his counterpart at Twitter; and Reid Hoffman, co-founder of Linkedin, the Microsoft-owned professional networking app.

To date, it has taken stakes in companies such as Uber, the ride-hailing app which is the world's most valuable tech start-up, and Honest Co, the consumer products firm founded by Jessica Alba, the Hollywood actress and entrepreneur.

Insiders said that Iconiq had agreed to back Collibra's latest fundraising after the company had also received investment proposals from KKR and Insight Venture Partners, two rival firms.

The competition to lead the Collibra deal underlines the growing interest in the use of data by large companies.

The Belgian start-up specialises in helping clients with an activity called 'data governance', meaning the effectiveness with which they retain oversight of their data.

Collibra's products are used by more than half of the world's ten largest banks, as well as companies in industries such as healthcare and manufacturing.

"Data's day has come. And with that, organizations have recognized that data can only be leveraged as a strategic resource to the extent it can be accessed and, most important, trusted," Felix Van de Maele, co-founder and chief executive of Collibra, said when it announced its previous fundraising in January.

"Collibra is the industry's most advanced purpose-built data governance platform and our intent is to continue capturing mind and market share in our field."

Collibra's other backers include Dawn Capital and Index Ventures, two London-based investors in technology companies.
