Data Innovators is a social enterprise helping organisations push data boundaries to create positive futures. We provide Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning Technology (MERL Tech) solutions and data communication services to Grantmakers and implementers, which enable them with fit-for-purpose data and reporting systems to achieve impact. Central to our offering is ImpactBoard, our proprietary monitoring and reporting system for which we are building an A-team to help scale it to the rest of the continent. Currently, ImpactBoard is used by the Department of Social Development to track registration of pre-schools in the country as well as Grantmakers that are implementing education programmes to improve teaching and learning in South Africa.
We are led by a team of young Africans who are passionate about making systemic change in development through data. Data Innovators was founded in 2021, originating from the partnership between Advisory Services at New Leaders Foundation NPC and Data Innovator Pty Ltd.
