Our Values

Take ownership

To make progress and change happen, you need to take ownership. Everyone at Data Talks is responsible, not just for their specific area, but for the overall success of the company.

Fail fast

We know that failing is part of building a successful business. We encourage our employees to fail fast, learn from the experience (share it with the team) and then excel due to it. Our motto is that we always either win or learn.

Stay collaborative

Our success lies in having a dream team. We don’t compete with each other (unless it’s table tennis). Instead, we collaborate and help each other to succeed.

Be fearless

A relaxed mind is a creative mind. Biologically, when you feel stressed or pressured, you shut down capabilities such as creativity, empathy, and problem-solving skills. That’s why we encourage our employees to take responsibility for their well-being and to be fearless (meaning: to be in a state with less fear). That way, we can work smarter, not harder to achieve great results.

Focus on results

We focus on delivering results in everything we do. The ideal result is helping our customers to create an outstanding customer experience and better business (while enjoying the journey).

Be respectful

Kindness and respect lie at the very core of how we treat each other. This becomes even more important since we are a diversified team with different personalities (the way we like it). We want everyone to feel appreciated and made aware that their talent and effort are needed for us to be as successful as possible.

To build a great product, you need great people.

Andreas Cüppers



Andreas Cüppers has extensive experience in the sports industry and has been working as Head of Consulting at the Hamburg-based agency Sweep, which advises sports rights holders on content marketing and provides operational support, since the fall of 2022. After completing his master’s degree in social sciences and a journalism apprenticeship at a major German daily newspaper, he worked as an editor for several years. But since his passion has always been sports, he didn’t have to hesitate for a second when he joined the communications department of Borussia Mönchengladbach, a traditional Bundesliga football team, in 2012. There, he spent many years building up and expanding digital communications via website, app and, above all, social media. In 2018, he took over responsibility for the club’s digital transformation and all innovation topics. In this role, he and his team drove forward the implementation of modern software solutions for a better fan experience and the optimization of internal processes, among other things. Data management was a central component of the digital strategy. In the fall of 2022, he left football after more than ten years and, in his new role at the agency, will be devoting himself primarily to clubs in the North American professional football league NFL.
