Berlin, Germany-based mobile survey specialist Dalia has raised $7m in a Series A round of funding, for investments including data science and machine learning capabilities, and further expansion of its real-time analytics and attribution services.
Founded in 2013 by Nico Jaspers, Fernando Guillen and Hanns-Christoph Leisewitz, Dalia has developed technology for the collection of real-time data including market trends, attitudes and opinions from a global network of smartphone users. With a publisher network covering more than 96 countries, its platform currently processes several million answers per day.
Adding to a 2015 seed round, the latest investment has been led by Balderton Capital, with participation from existing investors Wellington Partners and IBB-Bet. The firm will use some of the funds to recruit engineers, data scientists, and product and marketing specialists.
Commenting on the news, Jaspers said: 'Dalia has developed very rapidly and 2016 was our second consecutive year of revenue growth in excess of 500%. With Balderton Capital partnering with us, we are now extremely well-placed for the next phase of our growth'.
