Raito, a Brussels, Belgium-based data access management software for modern data teams, announced that it raised €4 million in seed funding as the company emerges from stealth mode.
Its mission is to make data teams more productive by simplifying data access management.
The financing round was co-led by Dawn Capital and Crane Venture Partners, with participation from a range of angel investors, including Collibra, Showpad, and Harbr.
Bart Vandekerckhove, co-founder and CEO of Raito, said: "As data management becomes more complex, companies are having to choose between innovation and security – it's that dichotomy that acts as a straitjacket for businesses where data is their most competitive asset. I'm extremely excited Raito is now able to emerge from stealth mode and we can get our productivity-first solution into the hands of customers."
Raito's launch by former Collibra employees is now launching to customers in Europe and North America, targeting mid-sized organizations with between 100 and 3000 people to disrupt the €11bn data access management industry.
