Zepl, a Mountain View, CA-based collaboration platform built for data science teams by the creators of Apache Zeppelin, raised $5m in funding.
SoftBank Ventures Korea, the early stage venture arm of SoftBank Group, made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to scale operations across its offices in the U.S. and Asia.
Led by Sejun Ra, CEO and co-founder, Zepl is a collaborative platform built for data analytics teams of all kinds to execute, share and co-create data analysis with a single environment that’s compatible with Python, Scala, R and SQL.
Zepl also released an enterprise version of its collaboration platform for private cloud deployment, which provides enterprises with such features as multi-language notebook execution, collaboration across teams, and sharing with fine-grained access control – in their own secure, private cloud environment.
The enterprise platform was developed in close collaboration with early adopters, including Samsung Electronics, University of Colorado, and one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
The company has offices in Mountain View, California and Seoul, South Korea.
ZEPL’s investors also include Vertex Ventures, Big Basin Capital and others.
