The round was spearheaded by Meritech Capital Partners, and saw participation from Sapphire Ventures, as well as existing investors Redpoint Ventures, First Round Capital, and PivotNorth.

Data analysts can use Looker’s platform to create and curate custom data experiences, “so everyone in the business can explore the data that matters to them in the context that makes it truly meaningful,” explains their news release.

In addition, Looker’s access and sharing model allow us to democratize data and provide timely and relevant information to the team at large.”
