Seeq Corporation recently announced the completion of a Series B funding round to expand its Industrial IoT business and offerings in the advanced analytics software space.

Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures joined with Altira Group, Chevron Technology Ventures,

and existing investors to enable Seeq to explore more innovation in the oil and gas, pharmaceutical, chemical, energy, mining, food and beverage and other manufacturing and supply chain intensive industries, improving their efficiency by enabling them to rapidly analyze, predict, collaborate, and share insights.

The funding reportedly will accelerate Seeq’s expansion of development, sales, and marketing resources, and will also increase its presence in international markets.


“With the backing of SAEV and our existing investors, Seeq is positioned to continue its rapid growth by addressing market demand for advanced analytics innovation,” said Steve Sliwa, CEO and co-founder, Seeq Corporation. “Through our direct sales personnel and more than 50 channel partners, our customer base has expanded to more than 40 countries with deployments as large at 5,000 users within one company.”

Seeq was extremely active in 2019, closing out a record year with an announcement that it had achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Industrial Software Competency status and that its advanced analytics solution was available in the AWS Marketplace. The company’s software is also available as a service in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

The company also shared wins and case studies with large energy companies including Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Merck and Roche, as well as chemical industry leaders Lonza and Covestro. Seeq also has a growing partner ecosystem, integrating with companies including OSIsoft, Siemens, GE, Honeywell, Emerson Automation Solutions, Inductive Automation, AVEVA, AspenTech, Schneider Electric, and more.

“Seeq is providing an important improvement in software for customers in process industries to accelerate insights, action, and impact on their production and business outcomes,” comments James Sledzik, Venture Executive at SAEV. “We are pleased to be leading the effort enabling Seeq’s continued growth.”

The round includes renewed participation by Altira Group, Chevron Technology Ventures, Second Avenue Partners, and other existing investors. Upon final closing, Seeq expects the Series B expansion to reach approximately $30 million, which is in addition to Series B funding led by Altira Group.
