RudderStack, an industry-leading platform designed to help brands build customized customer data stacks, has announced it has raised $56 million in Series B funding. The investment was led by Insight Partners with additional participation from Kleiner Perkins and S28 Capital.

The new investment, which brings the company’s total funding to $82 million, will be used to accelerate company growth and fuel product innovations.

“The rise of the cloud data warehouse has made it, in theory, easier than ever to collect, process, and analyze customer data. However, in practice, engineering teams are struggling to support their organizations as they seek to derive more value from their data,” said Soumyadeb Mitra, CEO of RudderStack.

“At RudderStack, we enable data engineers to build future-proof customer data infrastructure. We are uniquely positioned to support companies that are simply looking to collect data from their website or application and send it to downstream SaaS destinations or those looking to employ predictive machine learning models to better serve their customers.”

Since the company was founded in 2019, RudderStack has provided users with a single platform for managing customer data pipelines. Its comprehensive solution features real time customer data streaming and integrations that help brands sync and manage their insights. In 2021, the company revenue and customer base grew by more than 300 percent.

Around the world, more than 13,000 enterprise brands such as Anhueser-Busch, Allbirds, Hinge, Tonal, and Crate & Barrel trust the platform to collect, upgrade, and activate their customer data.
