What we do

DrivenData brings the transformative power of data science to organizations attacking our world’s greatest challenges.

We find real world questions where data science can have positive social impact, then run online modeling competitions for data scientists to develop the best models to solve them.

To see what this looks like in action, read more or check out our competitions!


Our partners

Social impact organizations are tackling hard questions where harnessing data can make a huge difference. But they often struggle to access the tools and the talent.

Driven by a desire for quantifiable impact, organizations are gathering more and more data about how they operate and who they're helping. If this sounds like your organization, reach out to us or read more about how we work with organizations.


Our members

Data science professionals, students, and researchers are constantly on the lookout for interesting, real-world projects.

We engage experienced and aspiring data scientists to solve pressing problems for mission-driven organizations. Competitors get experience with real-world problems and a proven track record of results.

If that sounds like you, check our our information for data scientists, or jump right in and join a competition.

Advancing Data for Good

DrivenData Labs

Competitions aren't right for every problem. For more flexible data and machine learning needs or sensitive data sources, we have our own team of experienced data scientists to take the case.

Learn more about some of our recent projects and working with our team.

Reproducible data science

Since starting this platform, we’ve seen a lot of data science in the wild. As the field develops, it’s becoming increasingly important to organize data science work so that it’s easy to reproduce and build upon. We’ve done a lot of thinking, writing, and speaking on this topic.

Check out our latest or try out our open source project structure: cookiecutter data science.

Open source solutions

The impact of a data competition shouldn’t end when submissions close. At DrivenData all of the prize-winning solutions from past competitions are openly available on GitHub for anyone to learn and build from.

DrivenData also maintains a number of popular open source projects for the data science, machine learning, and software engineering communitites. Take a look through and feel free to contribute!
