Stardog Raises $6 Million Series A Led by Grotech Ventures

Oct 24, 2017

Stardog Union, leading provider of Enterprise Knowledge Graph technology, today announced it has closed a $6 million Series A funding led by Grotech Ventures with participation from existing investors Core Capital and Boulder Ventures.

Since raising its seed round in July 2016, Stardog has more than tripled revenue and secured some of the most recognizable names in the Fortune 500 as customers, further establishing its position as the leading enterprise knowledge graph.

Stardog allows enterprise customers to query across an increasingly disparate, heterogeneous, and massive array of siloed data, regardless of structure, with high flexibility and reusability. This uniquely positions Stardog to unify all of an enterprise’s data sources at an infrastructure level, while allowing customers to begin with specific use cases and evolve over time as more data sources are added.

“Stardog is uniquely solving the largest unsolved problem in enterprise IT: data silos. They’ve generated substantial traction including some truly amazing logos despite having raised very little capital and having done no marketing to date,” said Steve Fredrick, Grotech Ventures.

Kendall Clark, CEO and Co-Founder, Stardog added, “We had an incredible year of growth and are excited to have Grotech as a new partner to accelerate further.”

As part of the financing, Steve Fredrick of Grotech Ventures has joined the board of directors. For more information on Stardog or to request a download of the platform, please visit
