Our story so far

In September 2016, we created a data science publication using Medium. Our goal was simply to gather good posts and distribute them to a broader audience. Just a few months later, we were pleased to see that we had a very fast growing audience and many contributors.

In June 2017, Towards Data Science already provides a platform for thousands of people to exchange ideas and to expand our understanding of data science. Our audience is now mixed, consisting of readers entirely new to the subject and expert professionals who want to share their inventions and discoveries.

In September 2017, we decided to expand our medium publication by launching several projects: a Patreon page and a new website. We aim to become financially sustainable, and bring more value to the data science community.


How are you funded?

We’re funded by our Patrons supporters, selected corporate sponsoring and consulting. All our benefices are reinvested into our organization with the aim to bring more value to the data science community.
