A word
from our
partners

I really found the recent session engaging and I learnt more than I hoped!

The recent webinar was an excellent introduction to the field of data collection and our students really enjoyed it. It would be great to dive even deeper next time and get a more technical view on things and see more examples of use cases etc.

Prof. Hugh Shanahan on behalf of Royal Holloway and Oxford University

The Bright Initiative by Bright Data has been an extremely valuable partner in helping us meet our growing demands for online data, as we’re able to outsource our data collection and management efforts. Without their technology, we’d be forced to build and maintain datasets manually every time we partner with a new company, which would take time and resources away from our team’s ultimate goal of matching underrepresented talent with their dream jobs.

By using Bright Data’s services, thanks to The Bright Initiative, I can overcome the bad actors’ methods and identify and differentiate the bad sites from the good ones. This obviously also helps the community – by letting them know about current cyber threats.
