Congratulations, Looker, on Your Acquisition
June 6, 2019

Congratulations to Looker on your acquisition!  All of us at Sapphire Ventures are incredibly proud and thankful to have been involved during an amazing part of the Looker journey.  

When we think of Looker we think of this Good Stuff:

  • Unparalleled talent
  • Customer-first culture and leadership
  • Amazing product
  • Relentless execution

For our part… well, we’re particularly proud of the talent and customer introductions we made along the way.  Some might characterize us as having been relentlessly supportive as a financial partner — getting involved in early March 2015, more than doubling down just a few weeks later, and supporting every subsequent financing — but that’s the least you can do as an investor when you find the combination of team and technology like Looker has.

We look forward to seeing what’s next as our friends continue to pursue the vision of bringing data to every business decision.  Congratulations, and thanks again to Looker!!
