French startup Yzr raises $2.4 million

French startup Yzr, the first automatic data normalization solution, has raised $2.4 million in seed funding, EU.Startups reports. The round was led by Anne-Laure Constanza (Envie de Fraise), Bertrand Diard (Talend), Frédéric Mazzella (Blablacar), Jean-Baptiste Rudelle (Criteo), Laurent Ritter (Voodoo), Arnaud Mauduit (Sekko Mono). 

Founded in 2018 by Sébastien Garcin, Jean Philippe Poisson, and Marc Aurèle Foucard, Yzr is developing a data standardization automation solution with two software tools: a data standardization tool and a reference design and maintenance tool. The company is aimed to make businesses thrive through data sharing, enabling effortless and masterful data normalization first. 

The raised money will be used to consolidate its position in France and expand in the United States by the end of 2021, with the hope that they can help cement Europe’s position as a leader in the standardization of data.
