DemystData Receives $12.5M Growth Funding

NEW YORK, NY, DemystData, the largest external data marketplace, has closed $12.5 million in growth capital.
The investment round was co-led by MissionOG and Notion Capital with participation from Singtel Innov8. The company plans to use the funding to further accelerate its data onboarding, invest in data platform development, and grow its product and client teams.

Demyst launched its API based external data platform in 2018, and has seen rapid adoption by data teams at financial institutions who are deploying better growth, risk, and compliance workflows. The current market for information services is estimated to be $50 billion, with big data adoption at enterprises rising from 17% in 2015 to 59% in 2019, and growing at a CAGR of 36%.

After onboarding a rich data partner ecosystem and generating high value around proven use cases for lighthouse accounts, DemystData has been experiencing rapid growth. "This is an exciting time for us. Data demand is growing from AI, digitization, and faster innovation cycles. Clients are rapidly adopting platforms to meet data compliance needs, support testing, and eliminate the friction from the external data", said Mark Hookey, founder and CEO, "Over the past 12 months we have doubled ARR, tripled our data access, and tripled our client base."

Michael Heller, executive chairman and MissionOG operating partner commented, "The team at DemystData have built an incredible platform for data scientists to harness an entire ecosystem of data providers. Focusing on deep data management technology and building data partnerships has enabled the company to differentiate itself in this growing market. With the additional investment and resources, we'll be able to drive further value with existing customers and accelerate our growing pipeline."

"DemystData has exhibited exemplary growth since our initial investment. We are excited to support their continued expansion. The company is currently filling an unanswered gap in the marketplace, and this capital will help them build upon their leadership position," said Patrick Norris, Partner at Notion Capital.
