Search engine firm ZincSearch secures $3.6M seed funding from Nexus Venture Partners


ZincSearch, a company redefining search engine technology, today announced a $3.6 million seed funding round led by Nexus Venture Partners. 

Dell Technologies Capital, Cardinia Ventures, Secure Octane, and technology leaders such as Anand Babu Periasamy, Balaji Parimi, Rob Skillington, Luke Kim, Anshu Sharma, Dan Pinto, Awais Nemat, and Alex Gallegos also participated in the funding round. Nexus Venture Partners managing director Abhishek Sharma will also join the ZincSearch Board of Directors.

Zinc is built on the concept that setting up and running a search engine should not take time. A modern search engine should be light and not consume excessive resources, lowering expenses and ensuring optimal performance. 

Zinc may be installed on a server or laptop in under two minutes using a single binary executable with no dependencies. Zinc is built on a modern technology stack of Go and VueJS, which allows for rapid development and iteration and simple operations, and low resource usage for consumers. In comparison to its competitors, zinc requires far fewer resources.

“Almost every company I have talked to has complained to me about their log storage complexity and cost. With ELK stack on one side and expensive hosted solutions – the majority of them with Elasticsearch underneath – on the other side, we needed a modern, easy-to-use, cost-effective solution that elegantly solves the problem. ZincSearch provides a modern search platform that alleviates the log search and analytics problem,”  

Prabhat Sharma, founder, ZincSearch


Most businesses rely on pricey hosted services and legacy software like Elasticsearch, which was created over a decade ago. Zinc solves these problems by providing a single binary executable that consumes little resources and has no dependencies.
