In addition to corporate and government partners, it works with twenty educational partners as well as leading academics in the field of data and analytics. Speaking to the importance of education, the foundation says “the abilities of universities to draw in talented students and to develop the skills they need to operate in the highly technical and challenging business environments of tomorrow is fundamental to the industry's success. … If big data and the data science industry is to thrive, it will do so as the result of the dedication of the educational establishment.”
