StartupYard and GoodData Partner to Provide Big Data Platform to European Startups


Successful teams in the Data, Search and Analytics round will gain exclusive, free access to cutting-edge technologies

PRAGUE and SAN FRANCISCO – January 8, 2014 – GoodData®, the leader in cloud business intelligence, and StartupYard, a mentor-driven seed accelerator based in Prague, today announced a partnership to provide select startups with free access to the GoodData platform. StartupYard is recruiting applicants for its fourth round until January 31st with the theme of Data, Search and Analytics.

"Having free access to an open and flexible data platform can save early stage startups huge amounts of time and money that would be spent on building similar technologies internally," said Cedric Maloux, Managing Director of StartupYard. "Companies accepted to this round will benefit from a bleeding-edge platform that already serves Fortune 500 companies around the world, allowing them to focus on what they do best: innovate and grow."

GoodData powers analytics for over 100 independent software vendors (ISVs) through one end-to-end platform that delivers integration, storage, analysis, visualization and collaboration around structured and unstructured data. Through this partnership, startups will access the full platform and pre-release technologies including JavaScript SDK, columnar storage Data Storage Service (DSS) and an open Cloud Data Application Platform. GoodData plans to make these technologies generally available in 2014.

"The beauty of an open platform is that it encourages innovation and fresh ideas," said Roman Stanek, founder and CEO of GoodData. "We are excited to collaborate with some of the smartest, most creative teams in Europe as they build incredible data products."

On top of the three-month accelerator program and perks worth 250,000 Euros, StartupYard will provide selected teams with free accommodations and air travel from anywhere in Europe to Prague.
