SEATTLE, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Element Data, Inc., a decision support software platform that harnesses artificial intelligence and machine learning to power decisions worldwide closed a $1.7M seed round on April 20, 2017.

"Leading global businesses at the executive level for over 40 years, I've seen my fair share of decisions both good and bad," said Archibald Cox, Jr., lead investor in Element Data, Inc.
