The Whaly team is proud to announce that we just raised a $1.9m seed round led by Red Alpine. We are on a mission to transform the way we do business intelligence and make it easier to manage, easier to understand and cheaper to run.
Emilien, Florian & Pierre, Whaly’s co-founders are three data experts that used to manage data pipelines for leading retailers and media outlets in Europe. They were faced with creating reports for their internal use, but struggled to get them done quickly without the help of software engineers. They decided to create the tool they wanted to have in their previous experience to help thousands of companies facing the same problem.
Whaly is here to help business teams make decisions based on data without having to rely on engineers or analyst for help. We have developed a unique product that enables data teams to create powerful models from live data without having to manage complex workflows or write code that business teams can consume in a safe and scalable workspace.
Joining YCombinator in the summer of 21, we started commercializing our product while still in the batch. In less than a year, we grew from 0 to more than 30 paying customers. Companies like Zefir, Gatling and Career Karma make live data driven decisions everyday in their operations while keeping their engineers focused on product development. Today, we announce that we have raised a $1.9m seed round led by RedAlpine with participation from Kima Venture and others, to hire key team members and create and scale our sales machine. Our ambition is to become the leading data platform for small and medium businesses in the next 5 years.
Although we’ve made a lot of progress since we released Whaly last year, we still have a long journey ahead of us.
Today, we have the team, the partners and the capital to fulfil our mission. Let's continue to focus, execute and build a platform that business teams love!
