Our Motto


WE ARE A STARTUP CRUCIBLE

DataTribe looks for exceptional startup teams with game-changing breakthroughs to forge the next leading cyber-security, big data, and analytics companies.

 

 

DataTribe is a unique startup studio that primarily partners with select entrepreneurs in the greater Washington D.C. / Capital area region. Our typical entrepreneurs are former elite government employees who built innovative technical solutions that now have significant commercial product value; especially where a commercial solution was not available, scalable, or advanced enough to meet the needs of a critical U.S. government challenge.

DataTribe has a unique competitive advantage: our collective U.S. government and business experience, an extended curated network of advisors, and successful startup-to-exit expertise.  DataTribe rapidly gives entrepreneurs an overwhelming asymmetric advantage to grow their vision from concept to successful company.

DataTribe consists of former leaders from the U.S. Navy SEALs, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and Silicon Valley executives and venture capitalists that have built several successful commercial product companies.
