Israeli marketing analytics developer Datorama has closed $32 million in Series C financing led by Lightspeed Venture Partners. Marker LLC and Eric Schmidt's Innovation Endeavors also participated in the round.
Datorama was founded in 2012 by CEO Ran Sarig, CTO Efi Cohen and Chief Solutions Office Katrin Ribant. This latest financing round brings Datorama's total funding to $50 million.
Datorama will primarily use the new funding to accelerate the company's artificial intelligence R&D, to further elevate its machine learning capabilities. The company, which has 14 offices worldwide with development headquartered in Tel Aviv, will also continue to expand its global footprint, and is in the process of hiring to further support its significant customer adoption and rapid growth.
Datorama has taken on thousands of brands, hundreds of agencies, publishers and technology companies that leverage the company's Marketing Integration Engine. Global customers include L'Oréal, Foursquare, Yahoo! JAPAN, GoDaddy and many more.
Sarig said, "This is a very pivotal moment for Datorama. Although we're extremely proud of our achievements and monumental growth in the exceedingly complex MarTech market, we're not going to rest on our laurels. In this next stage we're going to focus on the further development of our best-in-breed solution, and we're going to continue to push the boundaries of machine learning and how it's applied in the marketing analytics capacity. We can't wait to show you what's next."
