THE DATA INITIATIVE is a tech startup focused on unifying and drawing meaningful insights from unique public data.
With an initial focus on providing data insights and software to the financial services industry, THE DATA INITIATIVE is uniquely positioned to solve some of the data challenges that persist within the financial crimes/anti-money laundering space. The startup is focused on experts leading the way with embedded engineers supporting the delivery of an enabling customer application.
The startup has been the vision of Vic Maculaitis, a Scottsdale, AZ based entrepreneur (also owns and operates i3strategies, a strategy management consulting firm) and 15+ year financial crimes practitioner and industry expert.
“THE DATA INITIATIVE is progressing at an exciting pace to become a viable solution to the persistent data problems faced by financial services firms,” said Maculaitis. “Our product team has not only made great progress but has made great discoveries in the R&D process that will lead to real value for our future customers.”
Data, and more specifically, insightful data, is in high demand and especially critical for organizations in highly regulated environments seeking underlying support to their day-to-day business decisions.
“Having faced these data challenges firsthand, I truly anticipate THE DATA INITIATIVE bringing a real impactful utility and solution to the marketplace,” further noted Maculaitis.
