Empower Dataworks

We are a boutique consulting firm that specializes in data and engineering analytical services.

Consulting might be a dirty word, so you can call us a freelance firm, trusted advisors, or your engineering team in a box. Whatever you call us, we’ll be in your corner creating bold, client-focused solutions.

With every client engagement, we work to fully integrate technical solutions and analysis with boots-on-the-ground ops to maximize results, not just in theory.

We believe in insights for action.

What Do We Do?

We leverage tech and data to help small businesses and startups refine business processes, develop strategy, and understand the competitive landscape.

We also help businesses acquire and retain customers by developing an intentional online presence. This includes web analytics, website performance and conversion optimization, as well as list building and marketing automation. We’re not typically hired to make pretty websites or graphics, but we have partners who do.

As engineers and data scientists, we provide statistical magic and coding grunt work to craft analytical models and analysis tools for solving complex problems.

Our services cut across several industry verticals

  • We love supporting small businesses and startups, leveraging our first-hand experiences of how a small leg up in the data game can pay dividends as they grow.
  • After our years working in energy engineering and conservation, we’ve developed a soft spot for publicly owned power companies.
  • We have also seen how data expands beyond the traditional business world. Data and strategic tech have become crucial to community leaders and nonprofits for effectively delivering philanthropic and community development work. We educate and share insights through our affiliate, Grassroots Dataworks, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
