Wikibon ha publicado un listado, que insisten una y otra vez en que no es exhaustivo, pero que desprende un gran interés: financiación por parte de entidades de capital riesgo de las principales startups del mundo de los macrodatos.

Primera reflexión que me viene a la mente: qué interesante sería tener una información así de las empresas big data MadeInSpain, a que sí? 😉

Un aspecto en el que inciden es que hay un promedio bastante elevado en el funding: 19 millones de dólares, lo que se entiende como un gran interés por parte de los inversores en big data.

Los cinco primeros son: Palantir (888M), Cloudera (301M), MongoDB (223M), Mu Sigma (208M), y Hortonworks (148M). Sólo ellos representan el 50% del total del listado. Ir al artículo original
