Enabling start-ups to solve complex problems with data is a core reason Echelon exists.

We support early-stage start-ups by providing them with a deep network of experts that thrive in supporting ambitious entrepreneurs.

Additionally, we believe visionaries need access to key resources that will help their projects to take flight in the early years.

That’s why we have launched Echelon DS; a full service data solution provider that partners with businesses to create custom-built applications.

Many businesses at an inflection point for growth can’t afford to build the data science team they need to support their growth trajectory. We know this firsthand from working directly with entrepreneurs.

Echelon DS is built to support companies that may have a team of developers and want to implement data science projects without immediately hiring full-time staff. Or those businesses that have a competent data science leader but not the team to support.

One of the biggest pieces of feedback received from start-ups within the Echelon community is having support from a team that can not only build an application, but can empower existing staff with working knowledge of the project so that it succeeds long after the initial build is complete.

That’s why Echelon DS takes the approach of taking best practices across the data science community and building applications on the platform of the customer’s preference.

For more information on what Echelon DS is and the capabilities it can provide, check out today’s webinar Data Science Essentials for Start-ups: Where to start and how to prioritize. 

This is the first in a two-part series designed to answer questions on how entrepreneurs can incorporate data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence into their business plans.
