Dataiku was founded in 2013 by Florian Douetteau (CEO), Marc Batty (COO), Clément Sténac (CTO), and Thomas Cabrol (CDO) on the principle that in order to succeed in the world’s rapidly evolving ecosystem, companies - no matter what their industry or size - must use data to continuously innovate. Dataiku’s founding principal and comprehensive solution struck a chord with businesses around the world, resulting in rapid growth. In December 2014, Dataiku raised a seed round of €3 million; it then went on to raise a $14 million Series A round led by FirstMark Capital in October 2016.
Today, Dataiku is the data-driven backbone for some of the world’s top enterprises, serving as a central hub for analytics and machine learning model deployment/management. In 2017, Dataiku doubled in size and tripled its revenue, culminating in a September 2017 announcement of their $28M Series B funding round led by Battery Ventures. In December 2018, Dataiku announced a $101 million Series C funding round led by Iconiq Capital and supported by Alven Capital, Battery Ventures, Dawn Capital, and FirstMark Capital.
In addition to recognition from investors, Dataiku has garnered attention from analysts and, with more than 200 global customers, the worldwide market. With its latest round of funding, Dataiku continues to grow, employing more than 200 people between its headquarters in New York and offices in Paris and London, with plans to open additional offices in Sydney and Singapore.
