SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - January 20, 2016) - The German American Business Association (GABA) has awarded Datameer the Startup and Innovation Award to recognize its significant impact on German-American business. The Startup Award committee includes GABA board members and industry chairs as well as representatives of the German startup community. This follows Datameer's $40 million funding announcement last year geared toward strategic global development.

Founded in 2009, Datameer is the first company to simplify the big data analytics process into a single solution, disrupting the traditional multi-system data warehousing process. Datameer democratizes big data analytics by making it accessible for a broader group of users, rather than just for technical roles. Datameer's global headquarters are in San Francisco, California, and its European offices are in Halle and Berlin, Germany.

GABA is a non-profit organization with the purpose of fostering transatlantic trade between Germany and the U.S. Winners will be honored at the GABA Gala 2016 being held Friday, January 22, 2016 at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco.

"GABA is very excited that Datameer has been selected to receive the GABA Startup Award 2016," said Caroline Raynaud, executive director of German American Business Association of California. "This award is given in recognition of its accomplishments today and the growth potential of Datameer in the future. Datameer is a great success story of a team that combines dedication, innovation and great German engineering."

"The ability to work with the brightest minds around the world is a fundamental component to successful companies," said Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. "We will continue to invest in our German and American roots that have brought together the best in German engineering and Silicon Valley ingenuity."
