The 10 Hottest Database Startups Of 2020

Rick Whiting

Next-generation database companies are developing technologies to help businesses manage increasing volumes of data and increasingly complex data types.

Dgraph Labs

Top Executive: Founder and CEO Manish Jain

Headquarters: San Francisco

Dgraph Labs develops Dgraph, a cloud-native “GraphQL” database with a graph technology backend that executes both graph-style joins and traditional SQL joins used by relational databases.

The company also offers Slash GraphQL, a fully managed GraphQL backend service for building GraphQL applications, and the Slash Enterprise hosted Dgraph database.

Graph databases are particularly useful for applications where the relationships between the data is as important as the data itself (see TigerGraph below). They are designed to not only store data entities, but also store the graph joins or relationships between those entities.

Dgraph Labs, founded in 2016, has raised $14.5 million in three rounds of funding, according to Crunchbase.
