Snowflake, the cloud data platform, said it raised $479 million in additional funding co-led by new investors, Dragoneer Investment Group and Salesforce Ventures. 

Existing Snowflake investors, including Altimeter Capital, ICONIQ Capital, Madrona Venture Group, Redpoint Ventures, Sequoia, and Sutter Hill Ventures, are also participating in the round.

This funding round raises Snowflake’s post-money valuation to over $12.4 billion. This additional funding, and a new strategic partnership with Salesforce, is expected to further strengthen Snowflake’s market position and accelerate its momentum as the leading cloud data platform.

“Snowflake’s rapid growth and ability to unlock real value for customers have been impressive,” said Marc Stad, founder and managing partner of Dragoneer. “We are confident Snowflake’s innovative and evolving technology, and its customer-first approach, will continue to drive sustainable momentum over the long-term.”

Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman said they look forward to Dragoneer’s experience and insights as we continue to serve our customers and grow our business.

“We also welcome our partnership with Salesforce and look forward to the positive impact our technologies and services will deliver to our customers and the broader market,” said Slootman

Since its general release in mid-2015, Snowflake has earned the trust of more than 3,400 customers and continues to grow rapidly. Some of Snowflake’s most recent customers include Accor, Brex, CONA Services, ConAgra Foods, Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Limited, JetBlue, and Nationwide.
