Stealthy Proferi Raising $6 Million

Proferi, a San Mateo, Calif.-based analytics software startup, has secured $2 million of a $6 million funding round from Andreessen Horowitz and Greylock, according to a regulatory filing. The stealth-mode company was co-founded by former Greylock entrepreneur-in-residence Christian Gheorghe.

The company is in stealth mode, but provides the following info on its website:

The events of the past two years have made it clear that the old ways of doing business are no longer viable.  Clearly then, legacy applications based on decades-old management thinking and technologies are no longer sufficient to help companies survive, let alone thrive.  We think it’s time to rethink analytic applications.  It’s time for self-reliant applications for every user, not more meaningless reports that no one reads.  It’s time for actionable, predictive, collaborative applications that cut across transactive business processes, not more applications that create new silos.  It’s time for cloud-based, community-managed applications that become smarter through the power of the network.  We know there is a better way!!!
