About First Mile

First Mile is a NYC based boutique data consultancy. Our mission is simple - insights for everyone.

First Mile puts culture first. Though technology is important, to gain valuable insights and stay competitive, a data-driven mindset must be woven through the fabric of an organization’s culture. First Mile delivers this through self-service tools, trainers, data evangelists and change agents.

The data scientists come later.
