Discovery Day Miami was a success. 

On January 29th, 2019, we hosted Alternative Data Discovery Day Miami, which brought together 470 attendees —including more than 100 data providers. We successfully facilitated over 1,100 one-on-one meetings between data providers and data buyers.  In addition, BattleFin hosted a variety of panel discussions around the industry's current hottest topics. Below, you'll find a recap of the event as well as highlights you won’t want to miss.

From the CEO

Our return to Miami couldn't have gone better. We're proud to have facilitated over 1,100 one-on-one meetings between Data Buyers and Data Providers. Attendees heard from the best-of-the-best on panels discussing hot topics around the industry. I learned so much from this Discovery Day and I hope everyone who attended found it fun, insightful, and beneficial. Now, onward to Discovery Day New York on June 19th & 20th!
