Seed Funders

Core seed funding ($400,000) was generously provided by The Rockefeller Foundation in support of establishing Data-Pop Alliance, a global network that brings together individual and institutional actors involved in the 'Big Data Revolution' to advance common objectives through the use of new digital data and analytics tools and methods that can foster human development and societal progress.

Data-Pop Alliance was incubated in New York City by ThoughtWorks NYC, a software company and a community of passionate, purpose-led individuals who think disruptively to deliver technology to address their clients' toughest challenges, all while seeking to revolutionize the IT industry and create positive social change.
