eyko Raises $2.5M For Data Software

Santa Barbara-based Eyko, a new startup focused on "data preparation, blending, and streaming", says it has raised $2.5M in a Seed funding round, the company announced this morning. The company said the funding came from InReach Ventures and Taggia Investments, the personal investment vehicle of former Balderton Capital founder Barry Maloney. The startup is led by co-founder and CEO Paul Yarwood. The company said its software moves technical data preparation tasks usually performed by IT to non-technical business users.
