NGOs and other mission-driven organizations are faced with an onslaught of decisions on how to best collect, analyze and visualize the data that will help them make the world a better place.
We create teams of pro bono data scientists who work together with these organizations to understand the need, find a solution, and collaborate to tackle the problem with data science.
The Big Picture:
Organizations get a solution they can use along with an education in data science, our volunteers get real world experience and the warm fuzzies, and we all get to live in a better world.

It’s no mistake that Tom Levine is a featured Data Hero: this man is simply incredible.
