What is Data Natives?
Data Natives is Europe’s largest event platform for the data-driven generation. Data Natives was founded in 2015 to bring together communities from around the world who were excited by the boom in data science, machine learning, and all data-infused tech. Today, we organise events in 50+ key tech hubs across the globe, culminating in our annual Data Natives conference in Berlin in November.
Our mission is to bring together diverse strands of the global tech community. We aim to educate and inspire our 70,000+ community members, and motivate them to shape the innovations of tomorrow.
There’s no such thing as a passive spectator at a DN event. We put a strong focus on community, to build relationships and promote collaboration. All of our events are built by & for communities, highlighting local speakers, and letting our audience decide the topics & focus.
35% of our attendees list “Learning” as the number one reason they come to Data Natives events. Regardless of skillset and previous experience, we aim to empower our attendees to learn something new- whether that’s deep-diving into TensorFlow, or increasing knowledge around data literacy & privacy.
One of the best parts of organising a grassroots events community is discovering phenomenal data practitioners who’ve been marginalised by the wider tech ecosystem. We place particular focus on showcasing the projects, knowledge and expertise of womxn, people of colour & members of the LGBT community.
We believe that sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive concepts. We highlight projects which are changing our world for the better across ecology, health, & society. Our work and efforts are aligned with UN’s 2030 goals.
