Peregrine announces $30M Series B to accelerate growth with government, public safety agencies

Nick Noone

Today, Peregrine announced our Series B financing round of $30 million led by Friends & Family Capital and Fifth Down Capital, with participation by existing investors Goldcrest Capital, Craft Ventures, Godfrey Capital, and other committed partners. We’re honored to have an incredible network of customers, investors, and employees who believe in our mission to revolutionize how public safety organizations leverage their data to make better decisions. 

When we founded Peregrine in 2018, we carefully considered how best to support public safety agencies in their critical role on the front lines of communities’ most urgent needs. These agencies are charged with critical mandates, including keeping communities safe from crime, responding to natural disasters, improving public health systems, and directing social services to help people get back on their feet. 

Today, Peregrine’s customers serve and protect over 25 million Americans. Government organizations and their partners use our platform to find human traffickers, better engage with their communities on crime reduction and prevention strategies, advance fairness in the criminal justice system, get dangerous narcotics off the street, improve emergency response efforts, and more. 

For too long, only the biggest institutions with the largest budgets could afford the best technologies to improve organizational decision making. We’ve spent the past five years building a data integration platform capable of solving unique institutional problems with cutting-edge technologies, at a price point that all government agencies can afford. We are also proud to be building bridges between world-class engineering talent and the passionate individuals who have dedicated their lives to advancing public safety and prosperity for all members of society. 

Every component of Peregrine — from our data integration tooling, to our security and permission controls, to our user-facing applications — is flexible enough to support unique missions and specific enough to answer detailed questions across a wide array of job functions and security levels. And because fragments of mission-critical data often reside in disparate systems across completely different public safety agencies, we've found that cities and communities are individually stronger when they are capable of securely interoperating with one another in real-time. Whether Peregrine is serving a single organization or deployed as the backbone of a regional interoperability network, we take great pride in the work that public safety professionals are performing through our platform. 

Recently, we’ve created increasingly scalable ways for our customers to solve challenging public safety problems while enhancing data protections and security and maintaining quality of service. Andy Spellman, Founder and Managing Partner at Fifth Down Capital told us that “one of the most impressive things about Peregrine is its ability to deploy technology within municipal government agencies’ budgets that can be quickly configured to solve their problems. The result has been impressive growth which we believe is uncommon in today’s early-stage startup environment. We’re excited about Peregrine’s future and the positive impact they can make on society.” 

Our customers capture the essence of what we do the best. Vanetta Pledger, Chief Information Officer for the City of Alexandria, Virginia says, “Peregrine delivers intuitive, advanced data integration technology that’s essential for local governments. Their platform transforms how we take advantage of our data by turning it into business intelligence so we can continually improve services for our community.” 

And we’re using our latest funding to double down on doing exactly that – transforming how state and local governments use data to provide their best service for communities – while growing an increasingly diverse customer base in related markets. 

We are hiring passionate, diverse, talented people and encourage you to explore opportunities to join our team.

To our customers, thank you for the opportunity to be part of your mission.

To our investors, thank you for your continued belief in what we’re building.

And to our team, thank you for all you do. We wouldn’t be here without you.
