New York – January 6, 2021 – Cooley advised BigID, a global data intelligence company, on its $70 million Series D financing. Cooley partner Adam Dinow led the team advising BigID on the round, which raises the company’s valuation to $1 billion.

The round, composed of primary and secondary shares, was co-led by Salesforce Ventures and Tiger Global and included Glynn Capital, with participation from existing investors Bessemer Venture Partners, Scale Venture Partners and Boldstart Ventures.
