PopSQL Raises $3.4M in Seed Funding


PopSQL, a San Francisco, CA-based collaborative SQL editor for teams, raised $3.4m in seed funding.

The round was led by Gradient Ventures, with participation from Y Combinator, FundersClub, and angel investors Max Mullen, Co-founder of Instacart, Calvin French-Owen, CTO of Segment, and Guillermo Rauch, CEO of Vercel.

The company intends to use the funds to hire engineers to execute on its product roadmap.

Founded by Rahil Sondhi in 2017 as a side project while working as an engineer at Instacart, PopSQL is a SQL editor for teams that enables collaboration on data. It now boasts over 200 customers like Shipt, Redfin, and Via. Customers run 200,000 queries every week, with top customers using the app 20 hours per week.

Since the solution first came on the market, the team has added new components of the product, such as version control, scheduling and automation, search and discovery, and integrations with Slack and GitHub.
