Today is our first birthday! Exactly one year today, we incorporated Dataloop.IO, and began our journey to create the worlds best monitoring solution for Online Services.
London, UK – September 29, 2014 – Dataloop.IO, a London start-up providing infrastructure monitoring software for online services, has closed an early seed round of $800k (£480k). The round was led by Nic Brisbourne at Forward Partners and includes angel investors John Powell, the co-founder of Alfresco, John Hughes, the Chairman of Just-Eat.com, Andy Mcloughlin, co-founder of Huddle, and Troy Collins co-founder of SecretEscapes.com.
At Dataloop.IO, our vision is to build a great company that has the potential to be a leader in our space. We spent a lot of time doing customer development before we launched our start-up 8 months ago to ensure we were solving a big enough problem and since then we've had phenomenal traction getting our new company off the ground. Here's a summary of our progress since we started:
Last week we made a trip to Portland, OR in the USA to attend Monitorama 2014. For those of you who've never heard of it before, it is a conference run in the USA and Europe dedicated to monitoring. So as a monitoring company, it was an obvious event for us to attend and sponsor.
As we head into 2014 we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all the people who've taken the time to talk to us this year and helped us get our new start-up off the ground. Your advice and feedback has been invaluable in helping us get Dataloop.IO started, and myself and Steven are now working on Dataloop.IO full time with some amazing progress since we launched mid-October.
