The Maptive $2,500 Scholarship

At Maptive, we create innovative solutions that help our clients relate to their data in new and creative ways. This helps our clients gain more insight into their own customers. In business, understanding your customer base is paramount to being successful. For many businesses, their customer base may be from many different countries with varied habits and needs. How can businesses analyse what their customers want when the demographic is so varied? This is where using technology and creativity to conceptualize customer data comes in. Presentation of data in recent years has changed: infographics, animations and other illustrative ways of presenting data inspire us creatively, and allow us to connect with the information more deeply. Businesses are able to map their customers and adapt to their needs, so both benefit from the relationship. The next creative minds emerging into design, data and business will be using the latest data analyzing technology and will be at the forefront of advancing the creative conceptualizations of information. We want to engage with these budding creatives and see what they can present to us. We are offering a scholarship to an undergraduate student who can elaborately take on data presentation in a well constructed and thought-out essay.
