Building Businesses on Open Government Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Envision a business resource that companies can use to deliver better healthcare, offer in-depth investment tools, provide energy more efficiently, improve transportation, analyze market and social trends, or offer consumer services through mobile apps and the Web. Now imagine that this resource is free. That's open government data: public data that anyone can access and use to create new ventures and opportunities. Open data on healthcare, finance, education, energy, and many other areas has become a major business resource around the world.
Our panel brings together open data experts. They will discuss trends in the revenue models of open data companies, the kinds of data they have found most useful, and what startups and established businesses can learn from them. Drawing from their experiences at Amazon Web Services, Enigma.io, The GovLab at NYU and Socrata, the panel will show how businesses are putting open data to work.
