Nick Halstead

Founder, Datasift

Nick is the founder of DataSift, a 150-employee British technology company that has raised more than $77m in funds. As an entrepreneur, he’s known for having started news aggregator and TweetMeme, as well as inventing the Retweet button.

This all led to DataSift, the Human Data Intelligence Platform. The platform allows you to capture, analyse and act on all types of human-generated data, including social networks, blogs, news articles, likes and discussions, without compromising consumer trust. Earlier this year, DataSift announced its partnership with Facebook, which gives marketers and brands a deeper understanding into the topics that people are engaging in on the world’s largest social platform. Now in five locations – Reading, London, New York, San Francisco, Canada – the business is expanding rapidly and will soon have a headcount of 200.
