The foundation for datalab.cc was set in 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, with the intention of helping people work productively with data. Our big picture goal is the democratization of data insight. That is, we believe that everybody – everybody – can benefit from being able to work fluently with data, no matter what their field of interest, their specific job title, or their level of involvement.
