We are building a DataOS.
The data stack has evolved very quickly in the past decade and Formal's long-term vision is to become the governance layer for enterprise data, helping teams understand their organization's data schema in real-time, see where sensitive data is stored, and how it's consumed across the organization’s teams and services, all while staying compliant with data privacy regulations.
To our customers, Formal feels like magic, but under the hood, it’s a reverse proxy that speaks datastore protocols (such as Postgres, S3, Kafka) to inspect every single query and modify query results in real time.
Founded last year, we already have paying customers (Ramp, Trialspark, Modern Health) and strong traction.
We have raised over $5M from top-tiers VCs including Thrive Capital, Y Combinator. Our angel investors are top-notch startups executives and founders from Datadog, Clickhouse, Hex, LinkedIn, Vanta, and more.
