New IMPACT Conference Panel Will Explore the Intersection of Co-ops and Big Data


Big data can spot patterns, predict trends and provide game changing insights, but its collection and analysis can also erode privacy and perpetuate discrimination. How are cooperatives navigating the big data landscape in a way that preserves data ownership and ultimately empowers people?

That’s a question panelists from the National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), CoMetrics and Savvy Cooperative will consider during a lunch plenary session at the 2018 Co-op IMPACT Conference.

This panel will feature Jen Horonjeff, CEO and co-founder of Savvy Cooperative; Paul Guidice, CEO of CoMetrics; and Jasper Schneider, a Vice President at NISC. Each of their organizations creates innovative models that promote transparency, build confidence and make sure their members maintain ownership of their data and benefit from its collection and analysis.

Launched in September 2017 by Horonjeff and co-founder Ronnie Sharpe—both lifelong patients battling chronic illnesses—Savvy Cooperative connects healthcare companies and practitioners with patients who directly inform their work and get paid for doing so.

An industry leader in providing advanced, integrated IT solutions, the National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC) develops and supports technology solutions that enable its member-owners to excel in customer service, maximize diversification opportunities and compete effectively in the changing utility and telecommunications industries.

With tools that create timely and actionable analytics that improve financial management, drive innovation and better measure social impact, CoMetrics enables independent businesses, cooperatives and nonprofits to harness the power of data to transform their performance and impact.

Join us in October to be part of this timely conversation!

With a focus on measuring co-op economic impact, building an inclusive economy and financing cooperative growth, IMPACT 2018 will bring together co-op industry and thought leaders, policymakers and other partners to explore how co-ops are creating space for broader economic impact.
