Tracking a million businesses takes a lot of work, and they just added $6.5 million more in venture capital in addition to the $5 million they raised earlier this year:
Mattermark is not disclosing revenues but says that it now has 500 businesses as customers — with typical end users being “dealmaking professionals in venture capital,” sales, marketing, merchant and investment banking, commercial real estate, corporate development, private equity, hedge funds, and consulting firms. The service itself tracks data on some 1 million businesses.
It’s the bigger vision and potential of where that 1 million might go in the future that interests Feld and other investors. “Mattermark is bringing science to the art of dealmaking by organizing content into structured data, and we are thrilled to join them in indexing the growth signals of more than 250 million companies worldwide,” Feld said in a statement.
In addition to Foundry Group as lead investor, the Series A includes participation from existing backers, although Mattermark doesn’t specify which.
