Hadapt has developed the industry’s first Big Data analytic platform natively integrating SQL with Apache Hadoop. The unification of these traditionally segregated platforms enables customers to analyze all of their data (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured) in a single platform – no connectors, complexities, or rigid structure.

The company’s core technology began as research in the Yale Computer Science department from a team including co–founders Dr. Daniel Abadi and PhD student Kamil Bajda–Pawlikowski. The third co–founder and CEO, Justin Borgman, was a student at the Yale School of Management when he learned about Dr. Abadi’s research and saw its commercial potential. Dr. Abadi took a teaching leave from Yale, and Messrs. Borgman and Bajda–Pawlikowski left their respective graduate programs, to found Hadapt. In 2011, the company raised a $17MM Series A round of funding from Atlas Venture, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Norwest Venture Partners. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, MA.
