Business Description

Data Collective invests in entrepreneurs building Big Data companies. Big Data companies capture, store, secure, transmit, transform, and analyze data for economic advantage, either with huge volumes (terabytes to exabytes), or at tremendous speed (microseconds to seconds), or both. Big Data companies can come to market solving hard infrastructure problems, taking leadership in vertical B2B markets, or as truly data-driven consumer products. The common thread is that the founding team has the experience and discipline to solve data problems at novel scale, speed, or level of insight, and ideally all three. Our strong network, operational experience and technical background delivers unique value to entrepreneurs. We still read code. We understand chip architecture and how to build racks. We've run Hadoop jobs ourselves and built VM farms. And we will be there at 3 am to cheer the new build or at 7 am to help land that new customer. Just as the shifts from kilobits and kilobytes to megabits and megabytes in the 1980s and from there to gigabits and gigabytes in the 1990s created hundreds of billions of dollars of value, we believe another even larger scale disruption is underway and are poised to help our entrepreneurs take advantage of it.
