Hammerspace, a San Mateo, CA-based company focused on orchestrating the Next Data Cycle for enterprises, secured $56.7 million in its first round of institutional investment.
The round was led by Prosperity7 Ventures and included participation from Pier 88 Ventures, ARK Invest, and other investors.
The funding will support technology expansion and customer service, allowing Hammerspace to expand its team of skilled professionals dedicated to helping customers utilize unstructured data.
Since its launch in 2018, Hammerspace has aimed to make enterprise data globally accessible, useful, and indispensable in order to drive the next wave of business innovations.
The company's Data Orchestration System enables teams to access, activate, and monetize unstructured data without disrupting user access. This system allows organizations to dynamically orchestrate their data across multiple vendors and operators, avoiding the creation of data silos.
With prominent clients such as Blue Origin, The National Science Foundation, and Royal Caribbean Group, Hammerspace is well-positioned to lead the unstructured data orchestration industry.
“Hammerspace is uniquely positioned to accelerate the Next Data Cycle for enterprises through unstructured data orchestration,” said David Flynn, CEO of Hammerspace. “The last data cycle focused on structured data rooted in business intelligence, but this data cycle, driven by compute, orchestration, and applications, leverages unstructured data to drive product innovation and business opportunity with AI, machine learning, and analytics. Hammerspace’s new funding will enable the company to help more customers unlock the value in unstructured data, create new revenue streams, and drive operational efficiency.”
