Snowflake Computing, the only data warehouse built for the cloud, today announced that Capital One Growth Ventures, the venture investing arm of Capital One Financial, has joined its latest round of growth funding, bringing Snowflake’s Series D round to a total of $105 million. The Series D round was announced in April of 2017, led by ICONIQ Capital and accompanied by Madrona Venture Group, and includes all of Snowflake’s existing investors: Altimeter Capital, Redpoint Ventures, Sutter Hill Ventures and Wing Ventures. Since its founding in 2012, Snowflake has raised a total of $210 million in funding.
