DataLEADS is a data-driven Indian initiative aimed to create new platforms of data research and storytelling.
It is devoted to spread ideas and insights in the form of data visualisation and reporting. We present data visually to give unique insight and uncover patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. Backed by some of India’s best computer-assisted data specialists, journalists, public records experts, fact-checkers and economists, our team conducts data-driven reporting, research, data boot camps and training workshops. We work with world’s leading media companies, foundation and networks including with Asia News Network which is a network of 22 leading, Asian daily newspapers in 20 Asian countries, with a combined circulation of 14 million and a readership of more than 50 million. DataLEADS is founded by Syed Nazakat, an award-winning Indian journalist, media trainer and entrepreneur.
