Applying Data Science to Business & Financial Analysis

Our Motivation

Data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence are the future, yet the majority of businesses are not fully utilizing data science.

The critical shortage of data scientists makes building data science teams very difficult. Our services address this critical shortage by building consulting teams as needed and scaling on-demand. Using our data scientist network, we pair topical analytics specialists, data science experts, and data engineers as needed. Rather than focus on a single data science "unicorn", our approach is team-based, which elevates the collective output and is better suited for solving real-world problems! The end result is data science collaboration, which benefits all.

Our Values


Never stop until the customer is 100% satisfied


Work as a team to accomplish exponentially more than the sum of the parts


Be adventurous, unafraid of challenges, constantly learning and ready to innovate


Give back in the form of tools that progress the data science community
