About LucidWorks

Lucidworks (formerly known as Lucid Imagination) is a San Francisco, California-based enterprise search technology company offering an application development platform, commercial support, consulting, training and value-add software for open source Apache Lucene and Apache Solr. Lucidworks is a private company founded as Lucid Imagination in 2007 and publicly launched on January 26, 2009. The company was renamed to Lucidworks on August 8, 2012. The company received Series A funding from Granite Ventures and Walden International in Sept 2008; In-Q-Tel is a strategic investor. In August 2014, Lucidworks closed an $8 million Series C round with Shasta Ventures, Granite Ventures and Walden International participating. In November 2015, Lucidworks closed a $21 million Series D round with Allegis Capital, and existing investors Shasta Ventures and Granite Ventures participating. The company follows a Professional Open Source model to target organizations evaluating or already using the Apache Lucene/Solr open source search platform for their search applications. The company also offers several free, certified distributions of Lucene and Solr, which include additional utilities, bug fixes, and performance enhancements. Apache Lucene and Solr originally established a following without commercial support; however, as the market adoption for commercially supported open source grows, enterprise search application developers have sought similar models for these applications as well. Lucidworks is the primary commercial steward for the Solr project employing one-third of the projects committers and contributing 70% of the code in addition to producing the annual Lucene/Solr Revolution conference. The Lucidworks founding technical team consisted of Marc Krellenstein, a veteran in the enterprise search industry and several key contributors and committers to the Lucene project, Grant Ingersoll, Erik Hatcher, and Yonik Seeley, in addition to advisor Doug Cutting.
