Top 10 Most Funded Big Data Startups

startupsBig data is attracting a lot of venture capital. Of the many startups claiming big data as their business, who has received the most funding so far? CrunchAnalytics (which I wrote about here) provides an answer based on data from CrunchBase, showing us where VCs are placing their biggest bets:

Cloudera (5 rounds)                        $141 million        Apache Hadoop-based software, services and training

MuSigma (1)                                      133                         Data-Science-as-a-Service

Opera Solutions (1)                            84                          Data-Science-as-a-Service

10gen (6)                                             73.4                       MongoDB (open-source, document database)

Gauvus (3)                                          70                          Big data analytics solutions

ParAccel (3)                                        64                          Analytic platform

Talend (5)                                            61.6                       Application and business process integration platform

GoodData (5)                                     53.5                       Cloud-based platform and big data apps

DataXu (3)                                          45.8                        Digital marketing software

DataStax (4)                                       38.7                        Apache Cassandra-based big data platform

The 40 startups included in the CrunchAnalytics database have raised about $1.2 billion in venture capital. And although the amount of money invested in big data startups has been trending down (together with all other VC investments), I bet that they are not done yet.
