JASMINE VASANDANI
 

I’m a business strategist, researcher, & data scientist in training.

I’ve worked in the fields of entrepreneurship, cooperatives, public policy, urbanism, cultural engagement and more. Currently, I’m an evaluation consultant for a business accelerator for worker co-ops in NYC. Previously, I’ve worked at the Department of Small Business Services managing a multi-million dollar initiative, at policy foundations as a researcher, and at cultural institutions as a consultant. I’m also the co-founder of A1Bazaar, a platform for creative entrepreneurs, which launched while I was a fellow at the New Museum’s design and technology incubator, NEW INC. I have an MA from Parsons School of Design Strategies, and I’m evolving into the field of data science.

Tl;dr My work highlights.

 
 

Data Science

Most of my work experience revolves around data. After teaching myself Python and meeting other data scientists, I’ve decided to pursue a career path in data science.

 

Business Ownership

I co-founded a business when I was 19 years old, which I managed for five years. The second business I co-founded launched while I was a fellow at a design and technology incubator in New York.

 
 

Publications

I’ve written three public reports for a multi-million dollar initiative for the City of New York. Currently, I’m also writing a series of evaluation reports for a business accelerator.

 

Arts (& Data)

I spent several years working for arts institutions in India. Some highlights include working on Yoko Ono’s first solo exhibition in India, and creating classification systems for two art libraries.
