Data Collective (DCVC) is a venture capital fund based in San Francisco that invests in companies promoting big data. As of 2016, it raised $265 million in funds.[1]


It invests in the infrastructure level (the storage, security, and management systems), analytics and the top layer (vertical-focused apps in areas like lending, travel, customer service, medical research and more).[1]

It raised its first fund in 2011 (where some of its investments included Metamarkets, Contendo (acquired by Akamai), SocialCam and Kenshoo). It invested in its second fund in 2012, when it invested in limited partners (LPs).[1] In March 2014, it raised $125 million for its third fund.[1]

In December 2014, it raised $125 million for its “opportunity fund,” which focuses exclusively on later-stage rounds for existing investments.[2][3]
