Collibra biggest Belgian growth company in 2017
This is the third year in row that Belgian growth companies succeed in collecting more than 300 mio Euro. Especially start-ups in big data are in demand.
The largest capital round of 2017 was destined to VUB spin-off Collibra. Beginning of this year Collibra, a leader in data governance software for business users, closed $50 million (47 mio Euro) in Series C financing led by San Francisco-based ICONIQ Capital with participation from investment firm Battery Ventures.
Collibra originates from the VUB Laboratory for semantic Technology and applications Research (STARlab). Co-founders Felix Van de Maele, CEO, Stan Christaens, CTO, and Pieter De Leenheer, VP Research & Education, are all VUB alumni.
Congratulations to the Collibra team!
