When something amazing happens to great people, you have some sort of history with, you really should take the time to single it out for special mention and celebration.
It’s such a day today for the great people at CluedIn, a pioneering master data management platform out of Copenhagen, who just announced that they have raised a whopping 15M USD in their Series A round.
In doing that the team has come a long way from the very first time, I met them. After having been introduced to them at a Keystones event, I met with two of the founders, Tim and Martin. I wanted to meet them because I had the impression that this was going to be a ‘boom or bust’ case;
Either they would hit it out of the park. Or they would go down in flames. There was no in-between.
From the first meeting in the attic at the outskirts of Østerbro in Copenhagen, it was apparent to me that they would hit it out of the park. Not only were they great people with a very cool sense of humor that you just loved hanging out and working with They were also – and are – brilliant engineers with a crystal clear idea of what they were looking to do. And why.
Over a couple of months I helped them a tiny bit getting setup and started, and then I had to pursue other things. But Tim and co persisted in their relentless fashion being driven by their mission and spurred on by their determination. They got a bunch of great early backers, added to the team, got their first customers and the rest – as they say – is history.
Which of course isn’t at all fair to the lots, lots and lots of hard work that has gone into, where they are today.
Which is also why every huge CONGRATS that goes the way of these guys is so richly deserved.
Huge, HUGE CONGRATS, Team CluedIn!
