Whaly raises a $1.9m seed round to transform business intelligence

Whaly founders Pierre de Poulpiquer, Emilien Sanchez and Florian Buguet

Redalpine is excited to announce that it is backing Paris-based Whaly (Redalpine Capital VI) in a $1.9m seed round with participation from YCombinator, Kima Ventures and others. The company is on a mission to transform the way we do business intelligence, making it easier to manage and understand, whilst cheaper to run.

Whaly was founded in January 2021 by three data experts who previously managed data pipelines for leading retailers and media companies in Europe. In their former jobs, they had to create reports for internal use, but had difficulty getting them done quickly without the help of software engineers. They decided to develop the tool they had wanted back then to help thousands of companies that face the same problem.

Whaly is a next generation business intelligence platform helping business teams make decisions based on data without having to rely on engineers for help. The product enables anyone in an organization to access, model, and visualize data without having to manage complex workflows or write code. Already today, Whaly offers 40+ data source integrations and best in class data visualization capabilities. 

In less than a year since commercialization, Whaly is used by more than 30 companies in 6 countries to drive their business with data. Companies like Zefir, Gatling and Career Karma make real-time data driven decisions everyday in their operations while keeping their engineers focused on product development. 

The funds raised will be used to hire key team members and create and scale the sales machine. The founders’ ambition is to become the leading data platform for small and medium size businesses.
