Top Executive: CEO Emil Eifrem
Neo develops the Neo4j graph database, a type of NoSQL database that uses graph theory to map, store and query data relationships. Graph databases are generally considered to work more quickly with associative data sets and scale more easily to handle large data sets.
Neo was founded in 2007 and is based in San Mateo, Calif. In April the company debuted Neo4j 3.0, a release the company expects will help the database gain traction for mainstream applications with its scalability, new language drivers and other new development functionality.
