The Beginning—BigData
by Steve Schellong

I came to Alaska in 1993 seeking new experiences and adventures in the mountains and wilderness. It turns out that one of my greatest adventures was launching GrantStation. After spending the first few years working around the state in the commercial fishing and oil industry, I decided to pursue my interest in helping organizations leverage technology to be more successful. In 1997 I joined Cindy and team to help lead the statewide sales and marketing for BigData, the original online database of funders that she had built specifically for Alaska nonprofits.
