It’s the era of real time, big data analytics. Large companies such as IBM and SAS are still the powerhouses in this booming market, yet there’s plenty of room for a small Gaulish village to tackle the Roman Empire. Real Impact Analytics, a telecom big data startup from Belgium, is one of those Gauls. Today, they’ve announced a (first) 12 million euros investment round, led by venture capital funds Fortino Capital (Belgium) and Endeit Capital (the Netherlands), together with Euronext-Brussels-listed Gimv.
