Engagement — Platform Due Diligence

Data analytics is a concept every business has become familiar with in the age of data regulation and GDPR. Datalogue’s full-service offering allows businesses to succeed with data-based insights, data management and analytics solutions.
Datalogue helps businesses stay relevant to their customers by bridging the gap between internal customer data and external data sources, transferring analysis into experience. Founded in Hamburg in 2012, the business has grown across the European market in its decade of existence, opening offices in Zurich and Amsterdam to support the continent’s largest markets.
Ufenau’s investment will focus on the expansion of Datalogue through a program of digitalization in its marketing and sales processes. Datalogue will also be supported to expand its service offering to customers, developing analytical methods to work with new technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Datalogue’s existing strong market position will be key to building a European leader in the fields of data analytics, insight management, and data monetization.
“Datalogue’s product suite comprises several promising growth opportunities from a technical perspective. Ufenau Capital Partners is the ideal partner to help build them into a European leader in their sector,” said Dan Bender, Founding Partner at Code & Co.
“Datalogue has built an excellent reputation and expertise in the field of data management and analytics. The combination of analytical know-how and sound technology expertise is remarkable. We are looking forward to accompanying the company in its next growth phase and to working with the management and the entire Datalogue team," said Dieter Scheiff, Managing Partner at Ufenau.
