Dremio has closed a $160 million Series E funding round, bringing the company’s valuation to $2 billion. This preemptive fundraising occurred just one year after a $135 million round led by Sapphire Ventures in January 2021.
The new fundraising round is led by Adams Street Partners with participation from existing Dremio investors: Sapphire Ventures, Insight Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, and Cisco Investments. Adams Street Partners is joined by other new investors including StepStone Group and DTCP.
The investment will help Dremio accelerate its technology innovation, grow its customer-facing organization, contribute to open-source initiatives, and invest heavily in educating and enabling a growing community of data lake practitioners.
Dremio said it has achieved breakout velocity, doubling revenue for several years in a row, accelerating hiring of employees in the past year, and acquiring some of the biggest enterprise brands in the world, while working closely with its strategic partners such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Tableau. With this investment, Dremio is poised for hypergrowth in the years to come.
