A Concept is Born

OCTOBER 2017

Acting on a vision to solve the data challenges of the financial crimes risk and compliance space, our founder, Vic Maculaitis, formed THE DATA INITIATIVE. A 15+ year financial crimes practitioner, Vic has dealt first firsthand with the challenge and impact of the disparate data problems within the financial crimes risk and compliance space. With a basic thought of tackling the data problem with expertise first and technology second, the concept began to grow into a venture worth pursuing. THE DATA INITIATIVE was organized in the State of Arizona, where the technology start up community is growing at a rapid and welcoming pace!
