Dataiku is a New York-based startup operating an AI and machine learning platform targeted at enterprise.

The company touts its offering as incorporating the whole process from gathering raw data to deployment, while remaining accessible to all stakeholders from business analysts to data scientists. AI models offered by the company include solutions for fraud detection, the prevention of customer churn, predictive maintenance and supply chain optimisation.

Dataiku says it has over 300 customers, including the likes of global giants such as Unilever, Santander, GE Aviation and BNP Paribas.

Since its foundation in 2013, the company has raised almost $150mn. Adding to that figure, the company has today announced a further $100mn Series D led by Stripes, alongside Tiger Global Management, Battery Ventures, CapitalG, Dawn Capital, FirstMark Capital and ICONIQ.

“Our leadership in enterprise AI continues to attract world-class investors who understand that Dataiku’s solution and customer base are truly global and that we’re uniquely positioned to help businesses realise the untapped potential for AI to transform the enterprise,” said Florian Douetteau, co-founder and CEO of Dataiku. “In a global business market rocked by the changes 2020 has brought, AI has proven to be a critical element of organisational success driving business growth in every major vertical market.”

Machine learning and AI projects are notoriously difficult to achieve within a business setting, with issues such as feature creep, lack of expertise and more proving significant stumbling blocks. Dataiku’s ambition to enable enterprise adoption of AI is one it shares with many other players, both startups and established giants such as IBM.

“What we’ve seen in Dataiku is not only a commitment to developing future-proof technology for customers ranging across nearly every major industry and geography, but perhaps more importantly, a team of dedicated professionals and global organisation working to ensure trust, safety and resilience through machine learning. We’re excited to be a part of their continued success through this investment,” said Paul Melchiorre, Operating Partner at Stripes.

Have your say and nominate technology industry influencers and legends in our search for the Top 100 Leaders announced at upcoming LIVE event

The search is on for the Top 100 Leaders in Technology 2021 – nominated by readers of Technology magazine and open to all.

The initiative has been launched and nominations are now open, with the final, prestigious Top 100 due to be announced during Technology and AI LIVE running 14-16 September, beamed from London to the world.

This latest, definitive list of the leading executives and influencers in the industry will be announced at the event and shared across social media channels, this website, and presented in a special supplement that honours all of those named in our annual list.

The Top 100 Leaders follows on from the well-received Top 100 Women in Technology that BizClik Media Group (BMG) – publishers of Technology magazine, AI magazine and a growing portfolio of industry-leading titles – produced in March this year to coincide with International Women’s Day. 

“The Top 100 Women recognised the incredible and influential women driving our industry,” says Scott Birch, editorial director, BMG. “The success of that initiative encouraged us to recognise the Top 100 Leaders – individuals championing everything that we love about technology and embracing best practice that’s good for business.”

Nominations are already coming in, with some notable highlights including:

Rhonda Vetere - Herbalife

Bryan Smith - Expedient

The deadline for nominations closes on Sunday 1 August 2021, and it is free to nominate. The Top 100 Leaders will be announced across our platforms and at the LIVE event.
