DataKind Named One of Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Nonprofits
February 16, 2017

Big news - DataKind has been named one of Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Nonprofits for 2017 and we have you to thank.

Part of the magazine's annual ranking of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, this list honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in nimble business and impactful innovation. We were humbled to be recognized in the nonprofit category, alongside truly inspiring organizations like our friend and past project partner GiveDirectly, fellow New York-based The Fund for Public Housing and The Movement for Black Lives just to name a few.

While our stylish orange hoodies almost certainly swayed the judges, we know the real reason we were selected is because of all of you.

Even more than data, our work is about people. As we tell our incredible volunteers and project partners at our community events or before they kick off a project - YOU are DataKind. Our work depends on our global community of over 14,000 socially conscious data scientists, social innovators, subject matter experts, funders and data for good enthusiasts of all stripes.

Thank you for donating your time and talent to apply data science, AI and machine learning in the service of humanity. This honor goes to all of you, dear DataKinders - congratulations!
