Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. That’s what inspires us, drives our work and pushes us to challenge the status quo every day. At Microsoft we also work to empower our employees so they can achieve more. We believe we should each find meaning in our work and we ensure employees have the freedom and the reach to help make a difference in the world.

The South Big Data Innovation Hub accelerates partnerships among people in business, academia, and government who apply data science and analytics to help solve regional and national challenges. The South Hub is part of a network of four regional Big Data Hubs launched by the National Science Foundation and funded in part by host universities and other partners. Managed jointly by two co-executive directors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Georgia Institute of Technology, the South Hub serves 16 states and the District of Columbia - with members from universities, corporations, foundations, and cities committing their support. Learn more by visiting our News, Opportunities & Events page.
