Enterprise IT startup Julia Computing announced the completion of $4.6 million in seed financing. General Catalyst Partners and Founder Collective participated in the round.
Julia delivers dramatic improvements in simplicity, speed, capacity, and productivity to solve massive computational problems quickly and accurately. It is the preferred language for big data and analytics. It is an open source project with a diverse community of almost 500 contributors around the world, but research on Julia is anchored at MIT.
Julia is being used by a number of universities for teaching and research, and by businesses in areas as diverse as engineering, finance, and e-commerce. Julia Computing, Inc., builds products for users of the Julia language, and also provides a number of related professional services.
According to the company, the new investment will help accelerate product development.
