Onum Raises $28M to Help Businesses Extract More Value From Their Data at Lower Costs

MADRID, April 12, 2024 — Onum has announced that it has raised a $28 million Series A funding round. The round was led by a leading European specialist B2B software investor, Dawn Capital, with participation from Kibo Ventures and Insight Partners. The funding will accelerate Onum’s ambitious hiring plans, product development and commercial expansion globally.

Onum was launched in 2023 by Pedro Castillo, the founder of Devo, the cloud analytics and security platform valued at more than $2 billion, and his colleagues, Lucas Varela and Pedro Tortosa. The founders had a clear vision for Onum: Give companies complete control over their data while delivering real-time observation and orchestration and helping them reduce the amount of data they send to their analytics, SIM and SIEM platforms, so they only pay for what they need. In a world where every business has an ever-growing pool of data and seemingly ever-shrinking budgets, Onum’s platform delivers a smart, comprehensive solution.

The Onum platform allows businesses to uncover the data that really matters to them in pure real-time to ensure that only valuable data is sent to the appropriate data analytics platforms for immediate analysis. This immediately cuts the costs of storing and analyzing data that is not useful and also helps data analytics platforms function better, driving improved time to value for the organization. To make this even easier, Onum employs artificial intelligence to automatically identify the data that drives business and security impact to ensure that anyone can achieve these improvements and cost savings in record time.

The scale of this Series A fundraise is a testament to the power of Onum’s product, the urgency of the problem, and the impact Onum has already had on its customers. Now, the founding team will use this funding to make key strategic hires and push into the U.S. market.

“We are now entering a new chapter in our company’s evolution,” Castillo said. “This capital injection will fire us forward on our rapid growth trajectory, enabling us to cater to growing demand, bolster R&D, and scale our go-to-market capabilities globally. Most importantly, these new funds will accelerate our ability to deliver even more value to more customers, helping them capitalize on their data in new, sophisticated ways that were never previously possible.”

“We are incredibly excited to support Pedro and the team as they take their market-leading platform global,” said Henry Mason, Partner at Dawn Capital. “Onum can help businesses finally realize the enormous value of their data in real-time and bring order to their sprawling data storage and infrastructure. We are confident that Pedro’s stellar track record and experience scaling Devo into a leading data security player makes him the perfect person to build a global solution in this space.”

“We are beyond excited and very proud to support Pedro and his experienced team for the second time, after working together with him and Insight Partners in Devo for 8 years,” said Aquilino Peña, Partner at Kibo Ventures. “Onum’s phenomenal and quick product market fit is a great indication of the future success of the company. The intersection of booming data, orchestration capabilities, real budget impact and control make Onum a new essential layer of the data management stack.”

“We are thrilled to continue supporting Onum’s journey as it pioneers the frontier of real-time data observability and orchestration,” said Josh Zelman, Principal at Insight Partners. “Onum’s unique platform, coupled with Pedro Castillo’s track record of success, positions the company for exponential growth. We have seen Pedro build a world-class software business with Devo, and we believe he will do it again with Onum, empowering organizations to harness the full potential of their data in real-time, driving rapid and informed decision-making. Insight Partners is proud to partner with Onum on their journey towards transforming the data landscape.”
