Especially interesting deals, IMO, included DataGravity‘s $50 million raise to redefine our notion of what storage technology can do; Quantopian‘s $15 million round to introduce a new type of software-driven hedge fund; and Freight Farms$3.7 million funding to take its novel commercial farming system (inside shipping containers) closer to the mainstream.
