DescriptionSocrata is focused on democratizing access to government data. Its solutions help government leaders improve transparency, modernize citizen access to information and bring facts into every decision, with unprecedented speed and cost savings. Delivered as turnkey cloud services, Socrata’s data consumerization products unlock data in enterprise data silos and transform it into useful information that everyone can easily access, visualize, share and reuse.
Financial InformationSocrata is the first and only venture-backed software-as-a-service company in history to focus exclusively on enabling governments to open and consumerize their vast troves of untapped data in legacy database silos. On June 26, 2013, Socrata announced that it had closed an $18 million Series B round of financing led by OpenView Venture Partners, with participation from existing investors Morgenthaler Ventures and Frazier Technology Partners.
