Just as you can make business out of your talents and interests, you also do that with data. In fact, we let others make business out of our own data in order to get free services. Tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Amazon have built their empires with people’s data – their identity and behaviors. These companies have found ways to create unique value out of data or produce data that others cannot.
This workshop introduces you to the world of data as a business and helps you jumpstart your journey. Whether you are looking to leverage data you already have or generate new data to create valuable data products, services, solutions and businesses, this workshop is for you!
At the end of the workshop, you will be able to design ideas for your own data products and data business. The workshop topics are:
- The value of data and how to leverage it
- How others make money from data
- Designing data products
- Developing a data business model
Your facilitator for this workshop is Lauri Elliott, Chief Enterprising Officer at Spherio. At Spherio, they are creating platforms and products to enable the use of data in development and social good. She has decades of experience creating products and services from data.
