Investor Coffee Morning with Sage
March 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm GMT
SAGE Ocean is an initiative from SAGE Publishing (a leading independent, academic and professional publisher founded in 1965) to help social scientists navigate vast data sets and work with new technologies. They believe that social science has a critical role to play in shaping the future of society for the better. As technology changes the world around us, big data and computational methods provide an opportunity to address current social science questions in different ways – as well as to pose entirely new questions that will help improve our understanding of humanity. The new products emerging from SAGE Ocean will support social scientists to develop new computational social science skills, and to access and work with data at a scale previously unimaginable.
Sage offer investment and business support for commercial start-ups and later-stage companies that are focused on improving computational social research. They are particularly interested in software products, tools and services that provide new opportunities for social science academics to engage with big data analysis. For earlier stage product ideas, we offer support through our Concept Grants program.
Daniela Duca joined Sage Ocean as a product manager. She is currently working on bringing a new product to market that will help social scientists to easily and efficiently manage complex content analysis projects. Previously, at Jisc, she worked with student and researcher-led teams that developed new software tools and services for managing research data, providing business planning and market development guidance and support. She is also a visual artist, with extensive experience in financial technology and a PhD in innovation management.
