Steve Sliwa, the former CEO of Insitu Group, the maker of unmanned aerial vehicles that was purchased by Boeing for $400 million, has emerged at a stealthy startup company by the name of Seeq. We came across the startup today in a SEC filing, which indicated that the company, previously operating under the name Nebula 12, had raised $2 million of a $6 million round.
The Seeq Web site offers little detail about the business, and Sliwa’s LinkedIn page simply says that the company — working on “decision support for time-series big-data” — is in stealth mode.
We’re trying to track down more details on the company, and we’ll update this post as we learn more.
Sliwa served as CEO of Insitu for 10 years, growing it to an 800 employee powerhouse with annual sales of $400 million. In 2007, he raised $25 million for from Battery Ventures, Second Avenue Partners and Pteranodon Ventures for the maker of unmanned aerial vehicles.
Joining Sliwa at Seeq is Mark Derbecker, a veteran of Microsoft and Insitu. He’s serving as vice president of engineering.
