IA Venture invests in early-stage companies developing breakthrough tools and technologies for managing and extracting value from Big Data.
IA Ventures was founded on the belief that managing and extracting value from massive, occasionally unstructured, often real-time data sets is a competitive advantage.
Most data generated today is simply treated as exhaust "lost forever" along with the valuable insights held in it. This is purely because all but the most sophisticated organizations are overwhelmed by the massive datasets that are now commonplace. And this is just structured data. Messy unstructured data is everywhere and goes largely unexplored. Unlocking even a small amount of the information held within it will transform entire industries.
They believe many factors, including commodity clusters, cloud platforms, and advanced statistical algorithms, are making it possible to store, manage, and extract insight from massive datasets "creating a Big Data revolution". They invest in talented early stage teams fueling this revolution with the development of innovative tools, technologies and analytics for managing and extracting value from Big Data both structured and unstructured. They are interested in a wide variety of verticals including government, healthcare, financial services, and often their investments are directly or indirectly relevant to quantitative trading.
