About Data Point Live

Companies today have access to an abundance of data, and even the most recent YC grad can afford powerful analytics tools. Everyone’s job, from marketer to founder, is changing. Data Point Live brings together a group of data-driven practitioners from today’s fastest-growing online businesses to talk about how you need to be adapting yourself and your business.

Join us for an afternoon of no-fluff content from expert speakers, panel discussions, and lightning talks by your peers. You’ll walk away with new ideas you can put to work the next day. Oh--and there will be plenty to eat and drink. Come for the learning, stick around for the networking. It’s a rare opportunity to see so many data nerds in one place.
