The Big Boulder Initiative

The Big Boulder Initiative is the first trade association for the social data industry. Our mission is “To establish the foundation for the long-term success of the social data industry.” The goal of the Big Boulder Initiative is to bring together companies within the social data ecosystem to collectively address key challenges that face the industry as a whole.

The topics currently addressed by the Big Boulder Initiative include:

  • Data Stewardship: privacy, trust, compliance and regulation
  • Data Enablement: quality and validity of the data
  • Data Availability: awareness, access and methods
  • Data Value: ROI, use cases and education

The Big Boulder Initiative is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit entity governed by an elected Board of Directors.
