Disrupting Domestic Violence
Big Mountain Data is a new early stage startup addressing the "hidden in plain sight" devastating societal issue of family violence and abuse. Our first target is the scourge of Intimate Partner Violence or Domestic Violence. Big Mountain Data analyzes offender data and applies data science methods to develop applications that can be used by law enforcement to deter recidivism. In essence, we take a STEM approach to a field that has long been dominated by victim-centric emotional appeals for charity. Over the long term, we believe our advocacy for an open data approach to domestic violence can literally change the game on how society deals with a social epidemic that results in homicide, injuries, and broken lives every day. "Transparency is the antidote to a social plague that thrives on secrecy." Customers include law enforcement, government agencies, higher ed institutions, and social services organizations.
