Founders

In the first MyData conference in 2016, there was very strong feeling of “initiating” and “community coming together”.
Therefore, natural step further was to launch the MyData Global Network in March 2017. 

There are currently over 65 founding members in the network, who are ambassadors for the MyData movement around the world.
The network aims to add structure and empower the movement that is growing from the interactions around the PIMS meetups,
MyData conferences and related activities.
