Host Analytics among top 100 cloud-based startups

Host Analytics, the California-based company founded by St. Louis serial entrepreneur Jim Eberlin, is ranked among the nation’s best cloud-based startup companies for most money raised.

That’s according to data from Mattermark, a business intelligence company, published by Forbes.

Host Analytics, which is a cloud-based service provider, has raised nearly $86 million since Eberlin founded the company in May 2000 in O’Fallon, Missouri. The company now has approximately 200 employees in Redwood City, California.

Eberlin still sits on the board of the company.

Cultivation Capital, the St. Louis-based venture capital firm that has invested roughly $11 million since 2012 in tech startups, was an initial investor in Host Analytics. Cultivation General Partner Brian Matthews said Cultivation took a partial exit following Host Analytics’ $8.7 million Series B financing in May 2009, but still retains a minority stake in the company.

Host Analytics’ is ranked 184 on the Mattermark Growth Score. The Mattermark Growth Score, which counts a company’s website visitors, mobile downloads, social media metrics, employees, and publicly announced funding, ranks momentum over 90-day averages. The higher the score the better; Uber has a score of 15,401.
