Cloud based BigData platforme import•io secures $900k Seed Round

Cloud based BigData platforme import•io secures $900k Seed Round | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

import•io, the cloud-based Big Data platform, is announcing it has raised £600,000 ($900,000) from Wellington Partners, Alta Vista founder Louis Monier, and long-time French technology investor Emmanuel Javal to help the award-winning start-up expand and develop its platform.

 

import•io turns the web into a database, releasing the vast potential of the data trapped within the web. It lets companies, developers and coders extract, connect and fuse disparate sources of data from the web to let them build and create powerful new data sets and applications.

 

“We believe that the Web is full of useful data, but the reality stands: the Web was designed for documents, not data. At import•io, we want to allow anyone to harness this trapped data. We democratize access to it by making it simple to turn Web sites into data sources, and to fuse them to create incredibly rich new data sets in a single real-time, virtual database that can be easily and consistently accessed,” says David White, CEO of import•io.

Congratulations to Eric Archambeau !
