What will philanthropy look like in ten years? Increasingly, it looks like future philanthropy will be driven by data and rooted in technology. If done right, this will not eliminate the deeply rich humanity we have as a sector, but rather augment it, allowing us to work more productively and with greater impact. 

In this talk by BrightHive co-founder Andrew Means, you will see how better data about impact is changing the game in philanthropy. You’ll learn how your organization can utilize data more effectively and peer over the edge to get a glimpse of what our field might look like in 10 years.


Andrew Means is a serial social entrepreneur leading organizations that use data and technology to create impact. He is co-founder of social sector data infrastructure firm BrightHive, founder of Big Elephant Studios which works with social change organizations to use data and technology, and founder of professional development organization Data Analysts for Social Good. He has previously held leadership positions at, The University of Chicago’s Center for Data Science & Public Policy, and the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. He holds a Master in Public Policy from the Harris School at the University of Chicago. Andrew is a member of the Board of Directors at Ingenuity Inc. and Chairman of the Board at 10k Windows.
