Palantir Valued At $20 Billion In New Funding Round

Palantir Valued At $20 Billion In New Funding Round | Big Data & Digital Marketing | Scoop.it
The secretive data-processing company is raising up to $500 million in a previously undisclosed round of funding. The round makes it the third most valuable startup in the United States.
Luca Naso's insight:

There are a lot of secrets around Palantir, and probably you would not expect anything different from a company that has received funding from CIA (actually Q-Tel, CIA's venture capital arm).

What is known is that its data-processing software is being used to fight terror and catch financial criminals.

 

Palantir is now raising $500 million at a valuation of $20 billion, surpassed only by Uber ($50 billion) and Airbnb ($24 billion).

 

I say it's time to merge sharing economy and data science!
