Zing Data BI app gets seed investment

July 1, 2022

In the United States, business intelligence (BI) and visualization app Zing Data has raised $2.4 million in a seed investment round, which it will use to further develop its platform enabling “data users on the go”.

Zing is free on iOS, Android, and web for the first ten users in a company. The application can be used to query databases and generate graphs, run terabyte-scale queries, and collaborate on analysis or research items; and according to the company can reduce the 40% of a BI team’s time that is currently spent on simple ad hoc issues.

The company was founded last year by Zack Hendlin and Sabin Thomas, who met ten years ago in graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The new funding was led by Kindred Ventures, with participation from Correlation Ventures and several early backers. Kanyi Maqubela, Managing Partner at Kindred Ventures, comments: “Without data scientists, companies lack the toolkit to process and understand their data in context: until Zing. The mobile form factor, simple collaboration, and easy-to-understand tools are best-in-class. And this technical team is experienced as builders and users of business intelligence software, so deeply understand the customer’s needs.”
