Recently, as companies around the world move toward cloud computing, digitization, and AI, the demand for appropriate management of data assets is increasing. In particular, in recent years, the spread of cloud-based data warehouses such as Snowflake and Databricks has made it easier to calculate and share data, but it has also brought to light data quality and reliability issues.
Historically, data has been generated and used independently by various departments and systems, and as a result of this process, an infinite number of new data are generated, resulting in
inconsistencies in meaning and definition, low-quality data, and the background of generation due to turnover. There is a lot of
forgetting. Particularly in large companies, when considering company-wide data asset management in the context of DX and AI, these problems become apparent, hindering organizational data utilization, and creating a situation where it is difficult for the business use of AI to penetrate. I’m reading.

By utilizing this platform, we can centrally manage “metadata (information on data meaning definition, quality status, life cycle, usage, etc.)” and fundamentally support companies’ data & AI utilization and their governance activities. .
Already in the three years since its founding in 2021, Quollio’s inquiries are rapidly increasing due to the acceleration of DX and cloud migration at large companies, such as introduction by KDDI and Hakuhodo Technologies. The interface design that addresses the structural characteristics of the domestic IT environment and the ability to immediately reflect customer requests are also praised as support unique to a domestic startup.

Mr. Takeshi Abe
We are very pleased to be able to participate in the additional funding following the pre-Series A for Quollio Technologies. Since the last procurement, Quollio has been rapidly growing by acquiring customers with its strong proposal capabilities and thorough customer success. User companies aim to make data utilization easier for everyone, and Quollio’s data catalog product is a guidepost in that direction. In addition, Quollio is adept at quickly absorbing requirements and incorporating them into products, and is
overwhelmingly supported by user companies. We would like to provide maximum support so that we can contribute to Quollio’s future growth. Incubate Fund Co., Ltd.

Incubate Fund has also made an additional investment in Quollio, which has supported Quollio since its founding. As a result of building Quollio’s unique multicultural organization and building products based on modern philosophy, leading up to this Series A round, Quollio has received high praise from major clients around the world. In the future, I would like Quollio to install the concept of “data intelligence” as a mechanism in large Japanese companies and significantly update the data operations of the entire Japanese industry.
