Jovian, a data science startup which is California and Bengaluru-based collaboration has raised $450,000 led by Arka Venture Labs. The other investors who participated in the round include Better Capital, SenseAI, Axilor Ventures, and other individual angel investors from Silicon Valley.

The startup plans to use the funding to grow its engineering team and further develop the product. It is also looking for community development via meetups, webinars, online courses and hackathons, and customer development in India and the Silicon Valley.

“Data science is fundamentally different from software development, as it is much more experimental in nature, and requires you to keep track of many things like datasets, Jupyter notebooks, models, parameters, metrics, etc. apart from the source code. This is currently a very cumbersome process, which hinders productivity and collaboration. We’re trying to change that for the better,” Aakash NS, CEO, Jovian, said.

Jovian, a California and Bengaluru-based startup, is a platform for data scientists to track and reproduce machine learning experiments, collaborate with teammates, and automate repetitive tasks. The startup was founded by Aakash NS and Siddhant Ujjain in 2018.

As per the startup, the platform is language, framework, and cloud-provider agnostic, and easy to try out, and it tracks everything (datasets, source code, hyper-parameters, trained models, etc.) in a simple yet powerful online dashboard.

“With the proliferation of data scientists across the globe and Jovian providing DevOps capability in that area, it is a great space to be in,” Radhesh Kanumury, CEO and managing partner of Arka Ventures said.

“We’ve worked as data scientists for a couple of years, and as software engineers for several years before that. That’s how we realised there’s a huge gap in the quality of tools available to data science teams for managing their work. We started out by trying to solve our own problems, and soon found a lot of interest from the community in tools we were building,” added Siddhant Ujjain, CTO, Jovian.

According to Akash, the team’s aim is to make Jovian really easy to try out and use for first time users, while at the same time they plan to provide all the advanced features large enterprises might require to manage their entire company’s data science work.

On the other hand, Jovian competes with the likes of global brands like Comet.ml, Weights & Biases, and NeptuneML, among others.

Adding on, other startups that falls under the data science category are TheMatheCompany, Clootrack, Accern, Vaultedge, MUORO, ZenRays technologies, MachinePulse, Rechonsys, and others.
