Today, I am proud to announce a major milestone in the history of RJMetrics: We have officially closed a Series B investment of $16.5 million from August Capital, with participation from our existing investors Trinity Ventures and SoftTech VC.

This news comes on the heels of record growth, a major office expansion, and game-changing upgrades to our product. In the 15 months since raising our Series A, we’ve been working tirelessly in pursuit of our mission to inspire and empower data driven people. We’ve built a world-class sales team from scratch, scaled an award-winning marketing organization, and supported our customers with the best customer success team in the business.

Most importantly, thanks to our amazing product and engineering teams, we have built RJMetrics into a category-defining analytics platform that now helps hundreds of the world’s most innovative online businesses use their data to grow faster.

With this new funding, we will invest in delighting the RJMetrics users of both today and tomorrow. We will accelerate our hard work toward creating the fastest, easiest-to-use, and most robust platform for data analysis ever built. We will generate more content and resources than ever to inspire decision makers to unlock the power of their data. We will expand our client-facing team with more of the friendly, helpful experts that you have come to know and love.

I want to thank our team, not just for their hard work leading up this milestone but for their excitement about the future and passion for contributing to what comes next.

We’re also thankful for the fervent support of our investors, most notably Karan Mehandru from Trinity Ventures, Jeff Clavier from SoftTech VC, and our new partners Eric Carlborg and Tripp Jones from August Capital. They, along with our friend and RJMetrics Board member Chuck Dietrich, never cease to have our backs while pushing us in pursuit of our vision.

As proud Philadelphians, we are excited to continue our commitment to our local startup and technology communities. We want to thank local leaders like Mayor Michael Nutter, Bob Moul, Rick Nucci, Chris Cera, Josh Kopelman, Chris Wink, and Gabe Weinberg for helping bring national attention to the innovation taking place in the City of Brotherly Love.
