SeekWell Seed Funding – Modern Business Intelligence
May 1, 2020 – Product Trust Investments is thrilled to announce angel investment in a seed funding round for SeekWell.
SeekWell automates the most painful parts of analytics.
Analysts spend too much time re-writing queries they–or someone on their team–have written before, and copy/pasting results to update reports.
With SeekWell, when a business owner asks a question, Analysts and Product Managers can quickly find SQL queries that have answered similar questions in the past, send the data from the company database to Google Sheets, and schedule that data to refresh daily, hourly or every 5 minutes. Simple answers can be shared, and collaborative dashboards can be built in a fraction of the time.
In early 2020 SeekWell launched a redesign of their service and intends to leverage these pre-seed funds to grow its user base.
A Chance Encounter
Product Trust Investments first learned of SeekWell as Product Trust Investments’ Taylor McCaslin was evaluating data manipulation tools to connect Snowflake data warehouses with google sheets to handle simple data extract, transform, load (ETL) processes. Vendors frequently wanted $20k-50k for that feature. Taylor stumbled across SeekWell by chance and was able to create an account, connect to his snowflake instance within 5 minutes– it just worked.
For modern data science companies, creating accessible tooling to access, interact with, and manipulate data is critical to democratize data insights. SeekWell puts the power of business intelligence and data science workflows into the hands of business users who know how to use Google Sheets or Excel.
Easier Access to Your Data
SeekWell connects to all the major data warehouses a typical business has including MySQL, Postgres, Snowflake, Redshift, and SQL Server. It allows users to quickly query data, interact with it in a simplified python and SQL environment and then pass that data to Google Sheets, Slack, or Email.
SeekWell was co-founded by Daniel Fisher and Michael Ritchie. Daniel previously was a VP of Sales Operations, Strategy and Channel Sales at Rosetta Stone. Mike spent 15 years leading analytics teams at Bank of America and at startups. His goal is to change the way analytics teams share code by offering them an analytics platform and common code repository, allowing them to share and reuse SQL queries. SeekWell was part of TechStars NYC’s 2018 startup accelerator summer program.
