Data Science at Startups

Finding actionable product insights or developing predictive algorithms can lead to positive results that very quickly compound due to the extremely fast product and business development cycles at early stage companies.

Also, the larger variety of projects being done at Insight — some building web-based data products, others working with startup data — has further broadened the scope of data problems that all Insight Fellows gain exposure to during the program.

Increasing the diversity of unique data challenges solved in the collaborative atmosphere of Insight accelerates the rate at which Fellows learn about the state of cutting-edge data science while having a meaningful impact during their time in the program.
