Qwak, a New York-based company that has developed an end-to-end MLOps platform, raised $12 million in Series A1 funding, bringing its total funding to date to $27 million.
The round was led by Bessemer Venture Partners, with participation from Leaders Fund, StageOne Ventures, and Amiti.
This funding will allow Qwak to continue driving innovation and delivering value to its customers.
Qwak’s ML platform allows data science and ML engineering teams to continuously build, train, and deploy ML models and features to production at scale.
The platform brings all stages of the MLOps lifecycle together into a single end-to-end platform that unifies all parts of ML development through to production.
“Despite our unique journeys, we shared similar challenges with building ML pipelines, which led each of us to the realization that if designed correctly, ML could equip companies with a powerful solution to dramatically enhance business goals,” said Alon Lev, co-founder & CEO of Qwak. “The breakthroughs we each witnessed were significant, and our desire to add more ML capabilities to our solutions only grew stronger.”
The Qwak platform currently offers a feature store, model registry, tools for deploying models and monitoring them in production, as well as a data pipeline orchestrator.
