DataTalks2019

This week, Prof. Vishal Misra (Prof. Columbia University and Founder, Infinio) reminisced about his earlier years collaborating with a compulsive entrepreneur in New York City. This entrepreneur had a dream – make field sports exciting for crores of fans and data scientists (Apply here to join Dream11’s Data Science team)

Back in 2014, this entrepreneur’s mission was to make others believe in his vision as much as he did. But he soon figured, it was not going to be easy.

But nevertheless, the wealth of data he saw in this opportunity was unlike anything else. And he was determined to make the most of it, all on his own.

And once his dreams took off, there was no looking back. Everyone at his enterprise took some great efforts and enjoyed the spoils.

But moreover, the problem statement was so interesting that Prof. Vishal Misra flew down to Mumbai to continue collaborating with him and his Dream Team.

Imagine the wealth of data that would be exposed to an internet consumer company where 45 million users themselves analyse data to play. And with an expected growth to 100 million users by 2020, it’s just going to get better.
