Data Science Mentor for Launchpad LA

Posted: March 25, 2014 in News, Projects, Uncategorized

launchpad-laI recently was recruited to be a mentor in Data Science for top accelerator Launch Pad LA. In the heart of Silicon Beach, Launch Pad LA is a highly ranked start-up accelerator for exceptional entrepreneurs. They invest $25k – $100k, offer free office space one block from the Santa Monica beach, and provide access to a massive network of mentors, investors and advisers. I will be mentoring 4 portfolio companies on how to gain benefit from data science in yielding more value from their corporate data assets. I am very much looking forward to this new assignment.

UPDATE! 3/27/2014 – I had a blast meeting with four young companies at Launch Pad LA: Focus: TRAINR, Cojoin Inc., Monospace, and Parachute. I found all of the founders I met with to be very bright and each business promising. I was able to convey how data science and machine learning could be applied to all. These are companies to watch out for.
