How Is The U.S. Economy Really Doing? Measured By A Real-Time Macro Framework Using Alternative Data.

Join Us For The Data Hackathon Where 5 Teams Will Be Challenged To Present Blended Dataset Analyses To Provide Real Time Insight To The US Economy!

Throughout 2020 and 2021 funds, private equity and governments have asked “How do I use alternative data to get real time insight into the US economy? What are the validated datasets and approaches?” Eagle Alpha’s unique Hackathon challenge will address this!
 
You will get to hear from our 5 experienced teams on their approach to data blending and alpha testing to arrive at a real time macro framework. In addition, our experienced judges, with domain expertise, will give their assessment of the most interesting output.

 

Please join us Feb 24th as Team Chanadu, Team Cobra Kaidemics, Team Quantassaurus, Team Panda, and Team Quant Gurus, with their brave vendor team mates, present their proof-of-concept analyses to heavy-weight buyside judges!
