Leveraging Alternative Data for Fast Growth with Jordan Hauer Co-Founder and CEO of Amass Insights

Jordan Hauer is the co-founder and CEO of alt-tech company Amass Insights as well as co-founder of crypto-enabled marketplace Big Data Protocol. Jordan was one of the pioneers in email transaction data, a lead technologist at a multi-billion-dollar equity fund and was identified as one of New York’s top CEOs in the analytics space!

Jordan joins The Scale Up Show to talk to Ryan all about his unique perspectives and alternative ideas on leveraging and developing data as well as the growth and expansion of data science in his lifetime and career.


  • Jordan’s experience in the hedge fund industry taught him to build personal, strong face-to-face relationships and this is something he has translated into his businesses.
  • Attending events is a strong way to build industry relationships as well as asking to be introduced and referred by colleagues.
  • Amass Insights try and develop a detailed understanding of all the data providers that are out there in the world and decipher which are valuable for an investor.
  • Amass Insights are currently looking into how to use invoice data to predict sales and trends.
  • After working in a traditional hedge fund company, Jordan began to ask himself why they weren’t using the data available to them in the ad or marketing space. This question is what started him on his entrepreneurial journey and on to eventually co-founding Amass Insights.
  • Getting to this stage of his entrepreneurial journey wasn’t easy. Jordan co-founded two start-ups previously and had to deal with a lengthy and costly lawsuit after creating the second but it helped him build resilience and he learnt a lot of lessons from this low point of his career.
  • A new concept of Jordan’s to build growth is ‘Alternative Data Happy Hour’ which is a live industry event aimed at potential customers, utilising existing relationships and connections.


“Just know the right person, they don’t care who you are, as long as you can make a decent case for your data set”

“I was the real brains behind the operation and I was not getting compensated for that”

“I realised for me to get where I wanted to be in both life and career I needed to have full control over how the company was operated”

“We can’t be trying to capture a piece of every single deal, we need be connectors and known as the people who have all these relationships and know where the data is”
