The Belgian startup Esoptra, which develops and markets a DataOps platform for reusable business applications, today announced it secured €2.4 million in total funding. The new capital was injected by mix of prior and new Belgian business angels. The Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship agency also invested into Esoptra.
Founded in 2017 by Paul Carpentier and Jan Van Riel, Esoptra says will use the fresh capital to increase its sales and marketing efforts, to improve the scalability of its DataOps platform, and for internationalisation. In the course of 2020 Esoptra aims to start its US expansion.
Esoptra’s lightweight but scalable DataOps platform enables your data to work harder. The aPaaS platform (application-Platform-as-a-Service) serves as an instant scaffolding for plug-in solutions to a range of data-related use cases.

Paul Carpentier stated: “Data is the new gold – most organizations have understood this by now. So they collect more and more. Yet too little of that accumulated gold is mined in a swift and cost-efficient manner. That is exactly where the power of our platform is to be found. Compare it to a Swiss army knife: nearly all problems where existing data is insufficiently leveraged are fair game.”
To supports the company’s growth plans, Esoptra has added Pieter-Jan Mermans, previously co-founder energy startup REstore, and also startup advisor Omar Mohout to its board of directors.
