We launch!

Data Invest sets off – and we are glad to have you being part of our vision.

But we won’t just simply say “Hello World” with this mail. Instead, we want to look back at the exciting third quarter of 2017.

Besides our launch, there actually have been several interesting investments and acquisitions. You get an overview of those in this newsletter – our complete news blog can be seen on our newspage.

Even more important for us: Our marketplace is constantly growing. Three selected new entries are to be found in this mail, all other candidates for M&A, investment or partnering activities are accessible on the marketplace.


The third quarter of 2017 especially featured a series of considerably large investments: MapR, Thoughtspot and Segment each received more than $50 Mio. Databricks even pocketed $140 Mio. In terms of investments, the year 2017 by this day has already been stronger than the relatively weak year 2016. A list of all investments in 2017 recorded by us can be reached here.

But also in the matter of company acquisitions there have been interesting transactions – like the purchase of Natural-Languag-Processing provider ClearGraph by Tableau. Here is an overview of acquisitions in 2017.
