Social Sector Solutions
Data has the potential to revolutionize how the social sector works and yet many organizations struggle to gain the talent and tools necessary to turn data into impact. Working in partnership with social enterprises, we create innovative data tools and applications that help make the world a better place. We work in:
From human trafficking to mass incarceration, we work with organizations promoting justice and equality for all.
We partner with educational organizations who are deeply devoted to increasing educational outcomes.
Whether protecting fisheries or identifying poaching, we team up with those protecting Earth’s most important assets.
We partner with social enterprises who support smallholder farmers with the resources to break the subsistence cycle.
What does beyond.uptake do?

Why does beyond.uptake exist?
Social enterprises are attacking some of the biggest problems in the world, from human trafficking to education to managing our natural resources. Data science enables these organizations to measure and increase their social impact by taking informed action. beyond.uptake partners with organizations that do not have the resources to invest in sophisticated data science or world class analysts by giving them access to our own.
How is beyond.uptake funded?
The foundation is funded by the internal resources of Uptake. beyond.uptake is an extension of our corporate values and our company mission. It is the philanthropic and civic innovation arm of Uptake.
