investment roundup

SuccessData has closed a £600k investment round led by SuperSeed.

This investment will allow SuccessData to finance the hiring of data scientists and machine learning experts that hope to drive strategy and growth of the business.

Successdata uses sophisticated machine learning to automatically turn ‘dark data’ into machine readable assets and was previously called sc.io.

SuperSeed specialises in investing in ambitious, early stage start-ups that have the potential to transform the way business is done, particularly in large enterprises.

Laurent Louvrier, Founder and CEO of SuccessData, said: “We are delighted to have experienced such strong customer traction, and to have been able to close this round with SuperSeed as the lead investor.

“They bring real life hands-on experience in building enterprise software companies and we are really looking forward to having the team advise us on strategy and future objectives.”

Mads Jensen, Founder and CEO of SuperSeed, added: “The SuccessData team is highly experienced in both financial services, data science and technology development, with the three founders having more than 60 years of deep industry expertise between them.

“SuccessData combines promising technology, a great opportunity and a terrific team, and we are excited for the prospects of the business.”

This comes following SuccessData’s relaunch to reflect its international growth plans for the European and US markets.
