MotherDuck Raises $52.5M in Series B Funding

MotherDuck, builder of the serverless, easy-to-use data analytics platform based on open source database DuckDB, is announcing the results of its Series B funding round, accumulating a total of $52.5 million and bringing its total funding to date to $100 million. The funding round was led by Felicis, seeing participation from new and existing investors, including a16z, Madrona, Amplify Partners, Altimeter, Redpoint, Zero Prime, and more.

MotherDuck’s latest investment will fuel the continued evolution of the collaboration and scalability capabilities of DuckDB, keeping up with DuckDB as its developers innovate its database engine and as DuckDB adoption grows. 

“We’re proud of what we’ve been able to achieve over the last year alongside the DuckDB community and the DuckDB Labs team,” said Jordan Tigani, CEO and co-founder of MotherDuck. “Our initial funding allowed us to grow our engineering team to get our platform launched and in use by almost 2,000 analysts. With this funding and the momentum surrounding our platform and DuckDB’s adoption, the sky's the limit.”

“The key is a simplified scale-up approach to SQL analytics; for the 95% of us who do not have petabyte-scale data, a scale-up approach to analytics based on an engine like DuckDB can be faster, cheaper, and more user-friendly than distributed architectures,” continued Tigani. “Spending the last week in Amsterdam with the DuckDB team has solidified that DuckDB is the future. We’re excited about bringing the power of its simplicity to organizations at scale and improving the analyst experience across the board.”   

In conjunction with the announcement of this funding round, MotherDuck will no longer have a waitlist barrier for those seeking to try out the platform. Instead, those interested can simply sign up on the MotherDuck website and begin leveraging the power of DuckDB at scale, according to the company. 

The funding is further accompanied by the introduction of several new features born from customer feedback—including faster data import, enhanced notebook interface with SQL auto-complete, optimized hybrid query planning, and improved database sharing. 

The MotherDuck ecosystem continues to grow with its success, bringing in 11 new integrations with the platform, including integrations for Cube, dltHub, Evidence, GoodData, Kestra, Metabase, InfinyOn, LlamaIndex, Sling, Streamlit, and Voltron Data. A new Airbyte integration will be available to users today. On the horizon, integrations with Fivetran and Tableau will soon be available.

MotherDuck’s funding announcement precedes DuckDB’s upcoming release, 0.9.0, which will be available to MotherDuck users.
