At Whaly, we're on a mission to help data analyst create their data products.

We started by building a reporting platform that integrate an ETL, a data warehouse and a visualisation layer all in one.

We're are helping hundreds of data analyst in several countries delivering their data products.

We're former Product Managers and Customers specialist who have been working together for 5 years. We are well funded by top-tier investors (US, UK, France), accelerated by Y Combinator and incubated in Station F in the heart of Paris, France.
