Continual, a San Francisco, CA-based company building a next-generation AI platform for the modern data stack, announces its public beta launch with $4m in seed funding.
The round was led by Amplify Partners, with participation from Illuminate Ventures, Essence, Wayfinder, and Data Community Fund.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its team over the next year with new hires for sales and engineering roles, expand into new AI/ML use cases such as NLP, realtime, and personalization, and broaden support for additional cloud data platforms.
Led by CEO Tristan Zajonc and CTO Tyler Kohn, Continual enables modern data and analytics teams to build continually improving machine learning models directly on their cloud data warehouse without complex engineering. The company is offering a 14-day trial with its open beta release, enhancements for dbt users, and support for Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery, and Databricks.
