Data startup snags $2.1 million venture investment

Indianapolis big-data software developer Perceivant will use a $2.1 million venture-capital investment to refine its products and hire more workers, the company announced Monday.

Perceivant, headquartered in the Majestic Building at 47 S. Pennsylvania St., reeled in the funding from San Diego-based venture capital firm Bootstrap Incubation LLC.

The company’s software pulls together massive amounts of data for customers and analyzes the information.

Five people work for the firm today. CEO Brian Rowe expects to add another 10 to 15 people in the next year. The company needs software developers, data analysts and salespeople.

Rowe and Matt Coffman launched Perceivant in 2012. Both men worked at Indianapolis-based iGoDigital, which developed analytical software for retailers. They shifted to roles overseeing product development at ExactTarget Inc. after the digital marketing software company bought iGoDigital for $21 million in October 2012.

Rowe left ExactTarget and started working fulltime at Perceivant after Salesforce.com closed in July on its $2.5 billion acquisition of the digital marketing firm.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.
