Big 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.
