PANEL: Don't Go Blind Into This, Why Knowing Your Data is Invaluable to Startups

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Dave Fowler, founder of Chartio, and a group of San Francisco startups to discuss the importance of understanding your data in your databases. Startups don't have the time or money to invest in standard BI solutions and shouldn't take on building a solution on their own.

We will go over the challenges of finding solutions that work for small companies, what data startups should look for and why, why understanding your data is more important than ever and hear stories from real startups using data to drive decisions.
