Topic: Data Science in Startup Environments: How to Prepare for Success

Abstract: Data science in startup environments is fast-paced, dynamic, and requires a wide-ranging skill set. This lecture aims to create a framework for working in or leading data science teams in small to mid-size companies. I will use examples from my background in high frequency trading and SaaS in order to articulate potential challenges, recommend approaches, and highlight communication best practices. The goal of this discussion is to prime attendees for success in their careers, regardless of the size of the organization they work within.

Bio: An experienced trader, engineer, and data scientist, Mark Clerkin has worked in both financial markets and startup environments. He is a data scientist at venture studio High Alpha in Indianapolis where he has returned after a career that took him to Chicago and London and back.
