The Data Incubator is an 8-week educational fellowship preparing students with Master's degrees and PhDs for careers in big data and data science.[2]

The Data Incubator was founded in 2014 in New York City by Tianhui Michael Li, a former data scientist at local-mobile-social startup Foursquare and Andreessen Horowitz.[3][4] The company was incubated by Cornell Tech.[3]

The fellowship's expenses are paid for by hiring companies and it remains free for admitted fellows.[1] The program has four campuses: New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco, and Online.[1] The program also offers corporate training to Fortune 500 clients.[5]

According to Venture Beat, the program had over 1000 applicants from over 80 universities in its first round and accepted just under 3% of all applicants.[6] The program was selected by Business Insider as one of 15 competitive programs in the US with more competitive admissions than Harvard.[7]

In 2015, the program launched in Washington, DC and San Francisco.[8] In December 2015, the program established their first international campus in collaboration with The Center of Applied Data Science in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with support from the national government.[9]

In 2015 The Data Incubator was ranked second by Data Economy for data science incubators.[10]

In April 2016, the program was launched in the United Kingdom with government support through The Data Lab.[11][12]
