Sentenai, a Cambridge, MA-based data science technology company, raised $2m in seed funding.
Backers included One Way Ventures, and TechNexus Venture Collaborative, as well as angels Rob May, Jennifer Lum and Julia Austin.
The company intends to use the funds to further its product and customer development initiatives.
Led by Rohit Gupta, co-founder and CEO, Sentenai provides enterprises visibility across event-based data systems. Designed to combat data sprawl, enhance analytic technologies and data science initiatives, the company’s product includes event stream storage with search capabilities and the ability to learn over time as more data is introduced.
In conjunction with securing capital, Sentenai recently entered into several new pilots with organizations in the manufacturing and logistics industries, and expanded its operational and engineering teams by nearly 50 percent. New leadership hires include Dixi Wu as the company’s first Data Scientist, Luke Meleney as Director of Sales, Kyle Seaman as Director of Product and Partnerships, and Jay Edwards, who was the number nine employee at Twitter, as Director of (Technical) Operations.
