Episode 28 – Data Science with Jike Chong

Data science already is, or will be, a key factor in the success of your investing. In this episode of The Private Equity Technology Podcast, we spoke with Jike Chong, Chief Data Scientist at Acorns, a startup focused on building tools for micro-investing. Jike joined to set the record straight on what data science actually is and where you can be looking to deploy it both pre- and post-acquisition. He has extensive experience building data science teams and practices in Financial Services, including a stint at Silver Lake.

Our conversation covered many topics, including:

* Potential applications of data science during the PE process and within portfolio companies.
* Where to place capability and how to recruit and train skill sets
* The challenges in getting data sources that are reliable and useful, and how to start unlocking for value creation
