DataKind Goes to Washington
November 12, 2013

Today we're especially honored that our founder and executive director Jake Porway will be speaking at a White House-sponsored event to celebrate the launch of our partnership with Pivotal.

We're proud that our new data philanthropy endeavor supports the Obama Administration’s call to harness the power of data to advance national goals such as economic growth, education, health, and clean energy. Over the past year the White House has been supporting research and development to unleash the power of big data.  

You can read more about DataKind and Pivotal's partnership here and watch the Data to Knowledge to Action launch livestreamed at 1PM ET.
