Axual raises growth financing from investor Holland Capital

Utrecht/Amsterdam, 10 March 2022 – Holland Capital is investing with a private co-investor in software company Axual, which provides customers with a platform that makes real-time data streaming easier and faster. With this funding, Axual aims to realize its growth ambitions.

Real-time data streaming
Axual’s software platform enables enterprises to utilize data streaming based on Apache Kafka technology. In this form of data streaming, events are displayed in a stream of real-time data, which can then trigger other processes within the organization, as well as enable real-time analysis. Axual provides tools and services to manage data streams and their associated applications in an enterprise-grade manner.

Big data
There is a growing demand for such real-time data streaming software. The large amount of data available today is interesting for many companies to use in, for example, improving customer experience or enhancing internal processes. Axual is a valued partner for medium to large sized companies in the financial and energy sectors, as well as in the retail and public sectors. Companies such as Rabobank, de Volksbank and Eneco use Axual to work fully data-driven. This includes use cases such as sending real-time notifications, fraud detection, real-time trading in energy and linking smart sensors to predict energy consumption.
Gartner also recognizes that using and sharing real-time data is a must-have for business. Recently, Axual was selected by Gartner as a “representative vendor” in their 2022 market report for event stream processing technologies.

Investment for growth
Through the partnership with Holland Capital, Axual will further invest in product development and (inter)national expansion of the platform.
Jeroen van Disseldorp, founder and CEO Axual, “Holland Capital’s investment makes it possible to finance our ambitious growth plans and expansion abroad.”
Hubert Verbeek, managing partner Holland Capital, “Axual has built a strong position in recent years and has positioned itself well in the market. We look forward to entering the next phase of growth together.”
