Delta-v Capital is excited to announce its recent investment in Socrata, the leading data and analytics platform for federal, state, and local governments.  Delta-v was uniquely positioned to provide both secondary liquidity and primary growth capital to the business, and retained a board role through the transaction.

Founded in 2007, Socrata enables government organizations to collect and aggregate data from siloed departments and applications into one centralized cloud-based platform, extract insights through analytics and machine learning, and provide open access to citizens and internal constituents through APIs. The technology is optimized on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector cloud and delivered using the exclusive Socrata Blueprint Methodology. Customers like the Center for Disease Control, Utah Department of Transportation, and New York City rely on Socrata to deliver insights to their constituents and achieve their goals.

“Kevin Merritt and the Socrata team have built an impressive business as the market leading data platform for governments,” said Delta-v Principal, Dan Williams. “We believe in the platform’s tremendous potential and are excited to partner with Socrata in their next phase of growth.”

The company has more than 160 employees and is headquartered in Seattle with additional offices in Washington D.C. and London.
