Tanium

Tanium was extremely aggressive in raising money from the private markets in 2018, receiving a $175 million investment from TPG Growth in May and then hauling in an additional $200 million in an October round led by Wellington Management. The Emeryville, Calif.-based company has raised $782.8 million in ten funding rounds since its founding 11 years ago.

The funding round raises Tanium's pre-money valuation to $6.5 billion, while the company has increased its headcount by 84 percent over the past two years from 440 employees in December 2016 to 810 workers today. Proceeds from the October funding round will be used for general corporate purposes, as well as to provide early investors and employees with liquidity.

Tanium brought in former DreamWorks CFO Fazal Merchant in May 2017 to serve as the company's CFO and COO. Bringing in a new CFO is a strong leading indicator of a company’s IPO ambitions, with three-quarters of the VC-backed tech companies that have gone public since 2011 doing so between one year and three years of hiring a new CFO, according to an analysis by Rohit Kulkarni of Forbes.
