19 Feb UW startup DataChat democratizes data science
DataChat, the fourth tech startup from University of Wisconsin–Madison computer sciences professor Jignesh Patel, makes data science accessible to anyone.
Founded in 2017, it has grown quickly to 20 employees and recently received $4 million in funding from Silicon Valley venture capital firms.
DataChat‘s growth illustrates the many ways UW–Madison nurtures startups that arise from university research. It received support and early funding from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation and WARF Ventures and a home in the University Research Park @1403 site for its Madison headquarters.
