Online data extraction platform Import.io raises $13m


Web data extraction platform Import.io has completed a $13m Series A round of funding featuring investment from Imperial Innovations.

Oxford Capital, Wellington Partners, AME Cloud Ventures and Delin Capital also participated in the round.

The company, which states it “enables businesses to translate entire websites into usable data”, previously raised $4.5m in seed and angel funding, bringing the total it has raised to date to $17.5m.

In 2015, Import.io users created more than one million web APIs and extracted data from over 5.5bn web pages.

The company also took part in the second series of the Tech City News Elevator Pitch.

Creative thinking

“This new round of funding represents the biggest investment ever in web data extraction and we are thrilled to partner with investors who think just as boldly and creatively as we do about delivering on our vision,” said David White, founder and CEO at Import.io.

White said his company will use the funds to further develop its data extraction technology and expand its network of partners.

Mario Branciforti of Imperial Innovations labelled Import.io’s founding team “impressive”.

“We believe this team can build the biggest business in the Data-as-a-Service space and we are excited to partner with them,” he concluded.
