Airbyte raises $5.2M for its open-source data integration platform – TechCrunch
Airbyte, an open-source data integration platform, today announced that it has raised a $5.2 million seed funding round led by Accel. In its early days, the team was actually working on a slightly different project that focused on data connectivity for marketing companies. “At that point, we decided to go into deeper data integration and that’s how we started the Airbyte project and product as we know it today,” Tricot explained. As Tricot noted, a lot of companies start out by building their own data connectors — and that tends to work alright at first. We’ll cover every aspect of company building: Fundraising, recruiting, sales, legal, PR, marketing and brand building.
