Ahana, a San Mateo, Calif.- Presto-based analytics company, raised $2.25m in seed funding.
The round was led by GV (formerly Google Ventures) with participation from Leslie Ventures and other angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its technical team and deliver Presto-based analytics products.
Co-founded in 2020 by Steven Mih (formerly Couchbase, Aviatrix, Alluxio) and Dipti Borkar (formerly IBM, Couchbase, Alluxio), Ahana is focused on bringing PrestoDB-focused ad-hoc analytics offerings to market. The company, which has also joined the Linux Foundation’s Presto Foundation, plans to improve ease of use, documentation and foster growth of the community users of the PrestoDB GitHub repository.
Presto is a widely adopted federated SQL engine for data platform teams to perform ad-hoc querying of data in place.
