data academy


meetup mastermind

We are making Cincinnati a thriving data science community.

Note: Meetups are currently postponed due to venue changes. Stay tuned for announcement of a new venue soon. 

If you live in the Cincinnati area or plan on visiting soon, you can join us every month. We meet with the goal of elevating our data science skills, advancing in the data profession, and making meaningful professional connections. 


When we get together, we discuss the latest news and trends in data science and offer tips for improving our data science skills. Then we introduce ourselves, state goals, discuss our progress on our goals, and talk about how we can maximize our time for the month ahead. Then we socialize and network.
