Jake Porway launched DataKind (formerly Data Without Borders) to match social change organizations with pro bono data scientists to solve problems using data collection, management, and analysis in the service of humanity. DataKind helps nonprofits understand the value of their information and draw insights from their projects, providing them with experts and resources for the short and long term, while at the same time instilling them with the skills to become self-sufficient in collecting and using data for future projects. Through DataKind, Porway is creating a culture of sharing and taking action between the nonprofit and data communities that will increase their combined social impact.
