Our Origin Story:
ElevateData is Founded
ElevateData, a community for data executives, was started by drivers from SVB, Poshmark, and GGV Capital. For three years, this unique forum brought together senior data leaders from various locations and industries to discuss top-of-mind topics in data.
IID is Founded
In the ElevateData forum, it became clear that there is so much more we could do, as practitioners, to push the data industry forward. So we started IID as an investing vehicle bridging the gaps between founders and practitioners in data.

This is driving massive opportunities for disruption in the data space. And that's where you and we come in.

What Founders Are Saying
About Working with IID:
"Every founder knows that the quality and velocity of customer feedback is the most important asset a startup has. In our first week as an InvestInData portfolio company, we were able to capture strategic guidance into our market from 9 separate buyers. This has enabled us to validate critical hypotheses around our product and go-to-market strategy. I can confidently say IID is arming us to build a world-class product and business".
