In this episode of our ongoing series of Portfolio Updates, we turn the clock back a few years to take a look at a company that was acquired the year after they raised capital on the Propel(x) investment platform.

Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, Drastin is a software company specializing in search-driven, voice-enabled conversational analytics aiming to simplify the access and analysis of enterprise data sources and democratize data to decision-makers.

In 2016, Propel(x) investors participated in a Seed Funding capital raise utilizing a convertible debt structure.

In the year following the capital raise on Propel(x), Drastin was acquired by Splunk, a public company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

Seed investors shared in a liquidity event when the acquisition occurred for an undisclosed sum.
