The latest news and information about startups and innovations from the mobile world.

I am thrilled to announce our Race Capital seed investment in Opaque Systems - Ion Stoica’s (founder of Databricks) latest company.
Opaque will redefine how the world analyzes encrypted data in the cloud.  The team is building a full stack data infrastructure platform to enable businesses to do secured analytics by computing unseen & classified (encrypted) data on the cloud. My team and I worked really closely with Ion, Raluca, Rishabh, Wenting and Chester for the past year. And I am super excited about their progress. =) 
The future of secured data analytics is coming and they are hiring!
