Sam Dharmapala

Sam created DataMotivate in the Philippines in reaction to stories of human trafficking there. He spent six years as an engineer in the Australian mining industry, then completed his M.B.A. at Melbourne University and began working in banking, where he specialized in operations, risk, and technology across top-tier banks including JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank. He moved to the Philippines seven years ago to manage Deutsche's product control technology team. Four years ago, he was inspired to explore how technology-based jobs can transform the lives of survivors. His life is constantly enriched by his wife, Mindy, and two children, Benjamin and Grace.

DataMotivate is a Business Process Outsourcing firm created to help survivors of slavery in their last mile of restoration. It trains and employs highly capable individuals who have been rescued from trafficking in the Philippines and integrates them into its teams to do computer-based data processing.    DataMotivate specializes in helping corporations and technology companies in the U.K., U.S., and Australia that need delivery support for their core products and for their back-office functions. It provides high-quality, cost-compelling services including high volume data cleansing, image processing, cloud-based platform data migration, reporting, web research, website development, and ongoing data management.
