Before MyData Global, there was the MyData Network

In the first MyData conference in 2016, there was very strong feeling of “initiating” and “community coming together”.

A natural step further was to launch the MyData Global Network in March 2017. The network served to add structure and empower the movement that is growing from the interactions around the PIMS meetups, MyData conferences and related activities. The MyData Network became and was succeeded by the legal entity MyData Global, which was founded in October 2018.

These are the over 60 pioneers and founding members of the network.
