Survata is a market research company that operates a network of "SurveyWalls", short surveys that run on its affiliate sites that must be completed to access the content of that website, a function comparable to Google Consumer Surveys. Survata uses this network to provide survey responses and market research to companies such as Clorox.
Survata was founded by Chris Kelly, former McKinsey consultant and Matrix Partners analyst who started the company in response to the difficulty he had as a buyer of market research. Survata was a member of the Summer 2012 Y Combinator class.
In June 2013, they raised a $1.5 million seed round from PivotNorth Capital and SoftTech VC. In June 2015, Survata raised an additional $6 million in a Series A round led by IDG Ventures, with participation from Bloomberg Beta, previous investors SoftTech and PivotNorth, and angel investors such as Alexis Ohanian, Garry Tan, and Tom Patterson.
