2021. Census raises $16M Series A to help companies put their data warehouses to work



Census, a startup that helps businesses sync their customer data from their data warehouses to their various business tools like Salesforce and Marketo, has raised a $16 million Series A round. The company argues that the modern data stack, with data warehouses like Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery and Snowflake at its core, offers all of the tools a business needs to extract and transform data (like Fivetran, dbt) and then visualize it (think Looker). Tools like Census then essentially function as a new layer that sits between the data warehouse and the business tools that can help companies extract value from this data. With that, users can easily sync their product data into a marketing tool like Marketo or a CRM service like Salesforce, for example.
