Alphabet And Looker

Looker has raised a total of $280.5 million in eight rounds of funding since its start in 2013.

CapitalG, a growth equity investment fund of Google parent Alphabet Inc., previously had invested in Looker, as it did with Nest.

CapitalG, which helps tech companies scale with support from Google resources, led an $81.5 million Series E funding round for Looker in March 2017, with participation from Geodesic Capital, Goldman Sachs, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Meritech Capital Partners, Redpoint Ventures and Sapphire Ventures.

“Today’s businesses have access to more data than ever, and while it's become increasingly difficult to understand all of that data, it's also extremely valuable to those companies that can,” Gene Frantz, a CapitalG partner, said in a statement at the time. “After watching this space for years, we were impressed by Looker's unique holistic solution and are thrilled to support the company in its continued rapid growth.”
