Massachusetts-based Julia Computing has raised $24 million in Series A led by Dorilton Ventures, with participation from Menlo Ventures, General Catalyst, and HighSage Ventures.
Bob Muglia, former Snowflake CEO and former Microsoft President of Servers and Tools, will join the Julia Computing’s Board of Directors.
Julia Computing will use the fresh funds to further develop its secure, high-performing JuliaHub cloud platform and to grow the Julia ecosystem.
“I am excited to share that Julia Computing has raised a $24 Million Series A. This takes us one step closer towards building #julialang into the language and ecosystem of our dreams,” said Viral B Shah, co-founder & CEO, Julia Computing.
“We are excited to lead this important round and partner with Julia Computing. Julia Computing is at the very centre of technical computing, a substantial global market with significant barriers to entry. Julia’s machine learning and AI technologies make it possible to simulate rather than approximate, changing the economics of computational analysis and scientific discoveries. This is a truly transformative business with high potential for success,” said Daniel Freeman, who led the Dorilton Ventures investment.
The four creators of the Julia programming language including Dr. Viral Shah, Prof. Alan Edelman, Dr. Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski along with Deepak Vinchhi and Keno Fischer founded the company in July 2015.
