Dalia Research, a Berlin-based mobile survey startup, today announced the closing of a seven-digit seed round, led by venture capital firm Wellington Partners and the IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft (IBB-Bet). Existing angel investors, including WestTech Ventures, also participated in the round.
Dalia will use the funds to expand its data science and engineering team and to increase its
reach in emerging economies.
Founded in October of 2013, Dalia develops real-time targeting and profiling solutions for mobile market and opinion research. With a publisher-network covering over 70 countries around the world, its platform currently processes up to 3.5 million answers per day. Dalia already counts some of the world’s leading research agencies, technology consultancies and think-tanks among its clients.
Ajit Nazre from Wellington Partners stated: “One of the things that impressed us most was the way Dalia’s technology can be applied to generate a whole new dimension of consumer insights.”
Nico Jaspers, CEO of Dalia, explains: “The rapid spread of smartphones is a game-changer in how opinion and consumer insights are generated. We want to lead this shift around the world.”
