Basket gives your network of education and training providers a secure central data upload portal that provides immediate feedback and robust validation on uploads improving the quality of data you receive

A lack of data standards within education and training provider organizations makes it sometimes difficult to compare data and derive outcome-driven insight. We understand that this affects your ability to build impact-promising interventions. This is why we built BrightHive Basket.

With Basket you can…
  • a single point of entry for data uploading, validation, and secure transmission
  • Immediate, detailed, and automated feedback on data uploads, mapping data to your expectations of standards and quality
  • a detailed upload history by timestamps, organization, or user

Better inform providers, participants and funders on program outcomes and seamlessly comply with federal reporting requirements for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

Impact potential can often times not be fully understood - and it impacts people and funding. The reason is a lack of regular contact with outcomes data and siloed data across organizations in the ecosystem. BrightHive Reframe is here to help you look at yours and your partner’s education and training data holistically and find the best possible way forward.

With Reframe you can…
  • Intelligently link records across agencies using workforce data standards
  • Streamline compliance with federal reporting requirements and reduce institutional burden
  • Support data-driven decision-making with accessible real-time outcomes data
  • Automatically connect educational investments to wage and employment outcomes

BrightHive in the Press

BrightHive Logo

BrightHive in collaboration with NHSA was recently named one of the Early Childhood Innovation Prize’s “Top Ideas” because of its potential to create breakthrough impact for young children. As one of 15 Top Ideas selected from more than 570 ideas submitted from innovators in 100 countries through OpenIDEO’s prize platform, we will share in $1 million in prize funding from Gary Community Investments (GCI) to help accelerate our impact.

BrightHive Logo

BrightHive is a co-founding and active contributor and evangelist of the Community Principles For Ethical Data Sharing (CPEDS). Together with co-founders Bloomberg, and Data For Democracy as well as our growing community of ethical data advocates we believe that we need to define ethical and responsible behaviors for sourcing, sharing and implementing data in a manner that will cause no harm and maximize positive impact. The goal of this initiative is to develop a community-driven code of ethics for data collection, sharing and utilization that provides people in the data science community a standard set of easily digestible, recognizable principles for guiding their behaviors.
