GTA DataTech (originally known as TLA DataTech) was founded in 2017 by Kam. Nas later joined his mission to promote the understanding of the value of data. 

Having worked in the data industry for many years, they have become all too familiar with the disconnect between the business and the technical side of data. DataTech was formed to help bridge that gap.

With Shirley as the latest addition to the team and Co Lead for DataTech in the DACH region, TLA DataTech evolved into GTA DataTech aiming to connect all aspiring data experts and tech leaders together, around the globe. We are forming an international network to help us share knowledge and learn from each other to tackle challenges across industries. 

Global Tech Advocates is a network of 16 sibling organisations comprising over 12,000 tech leaders, experts and investors around the world.

Headquartered in London, it connects the global tech ecosystem, from business leaders and founders to investors and teachers, in an inclusive community.

Proudly independent, private sector-led and not backed by the government, Global Tech Advocates finds solutions to the challenges faced by tech companies internationally. We unify the private tech sector and speak with a consistent voice to influence policy and inspire change.
