Data for Good: Seer Data & Analytics and its mission to bridge the Digital Divide

One of the greatest pleasures of portfolio life is working closely with incredible people across several businesses. In addition to Tony Abrahams and the team at Ai-Media, I have also worked with Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield at Hoodlum for over 7 years. More recently, I became Chair of Seer Data & Analytics, working with my friend Kristi Mansfield and her co-founder Adam Peaston. Seer's mission is to help bridge the growing Digital Divide by helping the community sector use big data to make better decisions and build better social programs. While the Seer Data platform is still in closed beta, we are already helping 15 communities around the country to use data as a force for social good. It is exciting to be part of building a for-profit business that is helping to address inequality and social disadvantage. We move to commercial launch in Australia in September before launching in the US next year. We have been helped along the way by supportive Angel investors and the team at Telstra's muru-D accelerator. Check out Kristi's 5-minute pitch from the recent muru-D Demo Day, and stay tuned to hear a lot more about Seer in the months to come.
