Manta, a data lineage company founded in 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic, has chosen Tampa for its U.S. headquarters, citing the city’s rapidly growing profile as a tech hub.
In addition to Tampa, Manta has also opened offices in Lisbon, Portugal, and Dublin, according to a news release. The firm recently raised $13 million in Series A funding round that was led by Bessemer Venture Partners, SAP.io, Senovo VC and Credo Ventures.
“The surge of Tampa’s tech scene is a major reason why we decided to build our team in this hub of top talent,” Manta founder and CEO Tomas Kratky states in the release. “Manta’s commitment to improving data visibility for enterprises of all sizes depends on the talent of its employees. Tampa is the perfect place to continue to build our team of experts who will help drive the company’s growth in the U.S. We plan to continue to grow in the area and expand our presence here.”
Manta, the release states, has hired dozens of new employees throughout 2021 and 2022, with two-thirds of them located in Tampa. As a data lineage company, it helps businesses build a powerful map of all data flows, with the goal of achieving full visibility and control of their data pipeline.
