Amsterdam-based startup and provider of a cloud-based data publishing platform, today announced a $1.6 million extended seed round investment from the existing investor New Enterprise Associates (NEA). This recent financing round brings Silk’s total funding to date of $3.7 million.
The Silk platform lets non-technical users manage their structured and unstructured content as easy-to-search collections of web pages and visualizations. Knowledge workers who previously wasted hours each week searching through spreadsheets, text documents and presentations can quickly upload this content into Silk, which converts the information into collections of structured web pages, called Silk sites. By attaching specific user-designated tags to the HTML in Silk sites, Silk builds a semantic map of the content that allows users to quickly generate searches based on any combination of tags, or create detailed visualizations such as charts, tiles, or maps intuitively with just a few clicks of a mouse. Silk’s unique visualizations make data richer, more accessible and more impactful.
