Existing Snowflake investors, including Altimeter Capital, ICONIQ Capital, Madrona Venture Group, Redpoint Ventures, Sequoia, and Sutter Hill Ventures, are also participating in the round.

Details of the partnership with Salesforce will be announced at Snowflake's annual user conference, Snowflake Summit. The conference takes place at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas, from June 1-4, 2020.
