Metabase, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of an open source business intelligence data platform, raised $8m in Series A funding.
The round was led by New Enterprise Associates. In conjunction with the funding, NEA’s Julia Schottenstein is joining Metabase’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to hire new talent to improve the product and support its community of users, developers and partners.
Launched in 2015, Metabase is an open source platform which can be used by everyone in a company to ask questions and learn from data. The company’s open source system works as a starting point for how companies should measure, analyze and share their data as well as a suite of tools to deal with the complexity that arises as they grow.
Users can filter and group data to find just what they are looking for, without writing a line of sql, see individual records and explore connections between data, and visualize results via graphs and charts.
The company has already worked with N26, Color, Treebo, Paychech, GlobalGiving, and GoJek, amont others.
