DataChat is built in the Midwest, but based everywhere. Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, DataChat's stellar team brings together deep academic roots, rich entrepreneurial success, and industry know-how to make analytics and data science available to everyone.
Insights for Everyone (Without the Hassle)
Today the vision of DataChat is to build on the research of our co-founders to make data and analytics more accessible by allowing teams to use our Guided English Language instead of traditional data science tools to gain insights from their data.
DataChat was founded by Jignesh Patel and Rogers Jeffrey Leo John based on research they began at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Their work focused on using natural language to create data science pipelines.
The UW founders funded early development with investment from America’s Seed Fund in the form of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Science Foundation.
The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) was also an early investor in the Company. In 2020, DataChat raised an early stage investment round that was led by Silicon Valley venture capital firms Celesta Capital (formerly WRVI Capital) and Nepenthe Capital as well as individuals from Google and Palo Alto Networks.
DataChat’s Series A round in late 2021 was led by Redline Capital and Anthos Capital with participation from the existing institutional investors.
