We are a group of data ninjas (analytics professionals) that during office hours help our clients or employers introduce or optimize the process of extracting insights out of raw data. However after office hours we all contribute through different non-profit organizations to help build a better community. 

We are Curaçao Data Driven, a non-profit platform for creating awareness and sharing knowledge to create a culture that uses data to make better decisions. 

WE CREATE AWARENESS
AND HELP ENABLE OUR COMMUNITY

Our Mission

We believe that a key aspect to improve society and business is for people to adopt the culture of fact-based decision making. And we think that we can achieve this by first of all creating a safe platform, where practitioners and other interested parties can come together to learn, share their experiences and by way of collaborating, help others adopt this culture. After careful consideration and much thought, we came up with the following key components that will help us achieve our goal:

Create Awareness

For Curacao to become data-driven, our citizens have to become data-hungry. How do you make them data-hungry? By creating the necessary awareness showing how data unlocks the doors of business prosperity, solves problems and enables organizations to grow.

Liberate Data

And once we got them hungry, they'll be wanting data. However, data as such is not always easy to get hold of, and this is what we want to facilitate. To make publicly available data not just available, but easily consumable.

Empower People

But if you just put data or reports in front of someone, they have to know how to read it, or they’ll never become engaged in data as a concept or an asset. You don’t need to be a mathematician, but you should know how to interpret different classes of data and use the right tools to make informed decisions. 

 

We organize trainings sessions to learn the basics of dealing with data and turning this into insights. Additionally we also give product training in order to further empower the people so they can achieve more during this journey of becoming data driven.

We've classified our target audience as follows;

  • Government

  • Students

  • Businesses

  • Tech Community

WE BELIEVE IN INDIVIDUAL COMMITMENT TO STRENGTHEN THE GROUP EFFORT
