Bessie Schwarz

Cloud to street
Co-Founder and President
New York City
Bessie is co-founder and president of Cloud to Street, a big data flood tool that ensures everyone at risk is mapped. Our technology harnesses satellite imagery, big data cloud computing, and community input to determine where floods around the world will go and who is most at risk. The tool is faster, cheaper, updated in realtime, and responsive to communities , so we can put an update to date flood risk map in everyone’s browser and empower the most vulnerable and their governments to prepare for new disasters before they hit. In addition, Bessie holds a position at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, where she turns climate change psychology into tools for governments, NGOs, and businesses.

I would love to talk about putting people at the center of Big Data tools. Let's chat!
