Hey! I’m Arpit 👋

I started Data-led Academy because there is so much chatter about data but very little educational resources for folks (like me) who are deeply interested in the operations side of things and not looking to become data scientists or analysts.

I believe all tech professionals should feel comfortable talking about data and I wish to spark a cultural shift where those who are not engineers are referred to as less-technical instead of non-technical because it’s 2021 and almost everybody is technical to some extent — tech professionals definitely are. 

Through Data-led Academy, I wish to bridge the gap between data and people, while offering a gateway to the modern data stack for non-data professionals. 


The mission behind Data-led Academy is to demystify the data space.

I believe that everybody should feel comfortable talking about data and should be empowered to make data-led decisions.

To take this mission forward, DLA has joined Amplitude!

And together, we will continue to offer free resources for folks to gain data literacy in the hope to contribute to a much-needed cultural shift where everybody who works with data in their day-to-day feels confident identifying as a data person. 

Thank you!
