BattleFin Discovery Days

CSRHub CTO and Co-Founder, Bahar Gidwani, will be speaking at the 2021 BattleFin Ensemble & Discovery Days event, happening virtually on March 9th and 10th.

The conference will explore relevant topics around sustainable investing and the use of alternative and ESG data for capital market participants, starting from introductory “state of affairs” level and venturing into how AI/ ML bring clarity into responsible investing decisions.

Bahar will be speaking on March 10th at 10:30am ET on the "Cloud Analytics for ESG Big Data" panel, alongside AWS solutions architect, Colin Marden.

The panel discussion will include a demo that shows how to ingest CSRHub’s ESG data into Amazon’s QuickSight tool (via an Athena connector). We’ll crunch data about countries and industries and look at some ESG trends.

In addition to Bahar's panel, you will be hearing from:

  • AWS Partners and ESG data providers
  • Financial Services perspectives
  • Think-tank perspectives
  • AWS Solutions Architects and SMEs
  • Representatives from the Open Source Climate initiative
