What does beyond.uptake do?
We leverage the Uptake team and technology to develop data products and tools that solve big problems. We partner with non-profits, social enterprises, and foundations to create data models and applications that can be scaled across many organizations working to address big social challenges.
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.
