FastCompany Article on Data Without Borders and UN Global Pulse

Mobile Survey Deployment from Global Pulse on Vimeo.

We were thrilled to learn that some of the amazing people who came to work at our NY Datadive with the UN Global Pulse were featured in a presentation to the UN General Assembly about using global data for more informed decisions. We're of course beaming like proud parents that one of our teams went from showing their work at our weekend event to showing their work to Ban Ki-moon, but this great piece by Michael Coren of FastCompany also highlights the increasing awareness that we are heading toward a data-driven world. It's inspiring to see that the UN not only understands this, but is putting resources and planning behind fostering a world in which data is an integral part of development. It's heartening to see the conversation happening and we're honored to have even a small voice in it.
