1. Cloud kitchen startup JustKitchen to go public on the TSX Venture Exchange
ALL_news_21D21_Vt5RAF6GUK

JustKitchen, a cloud kitchen startup, will start trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) Venture Exchange on Thursday morning. It is doing a direct listing of its common shares, having already raised $8 million at a $30 million valuation.

The company says this makes it one of the first — if not the first — cloud kitchen companies to go public in North America. While JustKitchen launched operations last year in Taiwan, it is incorporated in Canada, with plans to expand into Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and the United States. TSX Venture is a board on the Toronto Stock Exchange for emerging companies, including startups, that can move to the main board once they reach certain thresholds depending on industry.

“It’s a really convenient way to get into the market and with the ghost kitchen industry in particular, it’s early stage and there’s a lot of runway,” co-founder and chief executive officer Jason Chen told TechCrunch. “We felt there really was a need to get going as quickly as we could and really get out into the market.”

Participants in JustKitchen’s IPO rounds included returning investor SparkLabs Taipei (JustKitchen took part in its accelerator program last year), investment institutions and retail clients from Toronto. More than half of JustKitchen’s issued and outstanding shares are owned by its executives, board directors and employees, Chen said.

One of the reasons JustKitchen decided to list on TSX Venture Exchange is Chen’s close ties to the Canadian capital markets, where he worked as an investment banker before moving to Taiwan to launch the startup. A couple of JustKitchen’s board members are also active in the Canadian capital markets, including Darren Devine, a member of TSX Venture Exchange’s Local Advisory Committee.

These factors made listing on the board a natural choice for JustKitchen, Chen told TechCrunch. Other reasons included the ability to automatically graduate to the main TSX board once companies pass certain thresholds, including market cap and net profitability, and the ease of doing dual listings in other countries. Just Kitchen is also preparing to list its common shares on the OTCQB exchange in the U.S. and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Germany.

2. 精誠轉投資Gemini Data併購新創ParseMe 聚焦發展國際市場

Gemini Data宣布併購專精數據處理及壓縮技術的大數據新創團隊ParseMe,未來雙方將整合ParseMe的第一哩資料收集系統,以及Gemini Data長期耕耘大數據分析領域的豐富經驗,打造一站式資料分析解決方案。

精誠資訊轉投資矽谷新創Gemini Data宣布併購專精數據處理及壓縮技術的大數據新創團隊ParseMe,未來將整合ParseMe的第一哩資料收集系統(First Mile Collection),以及Gemini Data長期耕耘大數據分析領域的豐富經驗,打造一站式資料分析解決方案,協助企業客戶強化資料擷取與精鍊能力,有效提高資料價值,提供企業更快、更強大的大數據採集及分析服務。

ParseMe成立僅1年多,此次併購不僅創下國內B2B企業軟體新創出場最速紀錄,加入Gemini Data後更可藉由其國際化團隊與通路,加速前進國際市場,值得國內新創團隊參考與借鏡。

Gemini Data共同創辦人兼執行長林宗瀛表示,Gemini Data聚焦發展數據應用領域,並與大數據領導廠商Splunk保持密切合作,推出的產品線已經成功整合包含數據平台管理與互動式圖譜數據資料分析等應用。Gemini Data此次併購具備視覺化資料萃取技術的ParseMe,除能強化Gemini Data的資料收集方式和彈性,也能讓旗下的智能化圖數據分析平台Gemini Data Explore容納更多不同來源的資料,具備更強大的資料處理彈性,擴大應用場景效益,雙方合作可說是強強聯手、雙贏互利。

ParseMe創辦人胡辰澔指出,ParseMe是由8個技術專家組成的大數據新創團隊,成軍不到2年即獲得新創加速器SparkLabs Taipei輔導資源與投資。ParseMe高達業界數據收集速度標準5倍的第一哩資料收集系統(First Mile Collection),以及加密壓縮機制,能有效簡化企業整體資料收集的架構,在多雲混合架構下讓非IT人員得以快速粹取、解析資料的領先工具。

ParseMe在創業初期即鎖定朝向國際發展,借重Gemini Data已經具有規模的國際通路與指標性客戶,讓ParseMe的國際化提前達標,歐美市場開發一步到位。

精誠資訊分析,隨著多雲混合架構的出現,企業連網設備與應用系統越來越多且複雜,需要被收集與分析的數據不僅大量更是多樣,在缺乏自動化、系統化與規模化的資料採集與處理方式下.資料導入越來越費工費時。
為協助企業解決此一難題,Gemini Data與ParseMe雙方團隊與產品整合後,企業導入ParseMe後即可透過其提供的Auto Parser,不須編寫程式就可以輕鬆進行資料解析,而不僅更彈性也更易於管理,即便是非IT程式背景者也可以快速從所需萃取的非格式化 (unstructured)資料中找到所需資料,並輸出到後端的分析平台,將資料解析的時間從幾天縮短成幾分鐘。

Gemini Data的客戶群包含了許多Splunk重度使用者,資料增量規模從一天數十GB到數TB不等,這些客戶對於提升Splunk的使用效益有持續性的需求,併購ParseMe後將可以幫助這些客戶將資料減量精鍊,提高資料價值密度,從而提升數據平台的儲存效益,也降低圖譜數據資料分析的複雜度。

另一方面,ParseMe的智慧資料剖析技術也可以幫助Gemini Data Explore具備非結構化資料與資料流的處理能力,進一步支援更多種原始資料類型,提供企業客戶更完整的一站式資料分析解決方案。
