SMART INSIGHT CORPORATION (headquartered in Tokyo’s Chiyoda Ward, Kiyoshi Machida, President and CEO, hereafter, SMART InSight) has raised a series C round of funding through a third-party allocation of shares with Innovation Network Corporation of Japan as the subscriber.
An Overview of Series C
Subscriber of Third-party Allocation of Shares: Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo, Mikihide Katsumata, President and COO)
Funding Amount: 500 million yen
Series A funding occurred in October of 2013 when the company was established through an incorporation-type company split. Series B then occurred in July of 2014. Funding was increased as noted above with series C.
Since October of 2013, development has focused on a next-generation product, Mµgen, which can integrate and visualize multiple databases in short periods of time. At the same time, we were preparing the product for the global market.
On 22 July 2015, we held a product announcement for Mµgen, replete with endorsements from a total of twenty companies and business partners that have already engaged to use Mµgen.
With this latest infusion of funding we will be able to strengthen out technological and retail ties with global cloud service providers, and launch Mµgen domestically and overseas, primarily in the US market.
