About Brooklyn Data Co.

Who we are and how we got started

As an early user of many of the tools we now consider part of the Modern Data Stack, Brooklyn Data’s founder Scott saw the power of doing data right. However, he also noticed that while cloud data tooling is more powerful and accessible than ever, many organizations struggled to complete data initiatives. With that in mind, in 2018 Scott started Brooklyn Data Co. (BDC), a consultancy that partners with its clients to build data capabilities that last.

"There is so much power in doing data right and Brooklyn Data Co. was founded to help organizations unlock the value of data to drive business outcomes. By joining forces with Velir, we’ll be able to help more organizations take advantage of the powerful tools that are part of the modern data and customer experience stack."
Scott Breitenother Chief Data Officer, Velir

Becoming a Velir Company

In March 2023, BDC was acquired by Velir, a digital marketing agency based in Somerville, MA, to form a full-service data-driven digital agency with the expertise to help organizations manage, understand, and act on audience data to provide exceptional digital experiences.
