However, the data is raw, unstructured, and constantly shifting, making it difficult for companies to use it in any meaningful way. With the Series B funding, we will massively increase our reach and bring our capabilities to more markets and geographies. We are highly enthusiastic about the investment from Valor and look forward to working together with their incredibly experienced team to elevate Synaptic to the next level.”

We are excited to support the Synaptic team as they enhance the accessibility and utility of alternative data."
