“We’re thrilled to have Tenfore Holdings as a new partner,” said Stardog CEO and cofounder Kendall Clark in a statement. “Our Knowledge Graph Platform has the potential to transform the way enterprises manage their data. Tenfore’s experience, both as investors and operators, and their network will be invaluable in helping us get there.”
The funds will be used on marketing, sales and speeding up product development for the Crystal City–based firm. The other $6 million was led by DC’s Grotech Ventures, with participation from Core Capital and Boulder Ventures.
“Other solutions today cater to a slice of the enterprise data landscape. Stardog’s pace of growth is exciting, and Tenfore is pleased to back this exceptional team,” said Dan Levine, managing member of Tenfore Holdings in a statement.
