Transcript

  • 1. Open Data startups @heri
  • 2. What’s a startup?• For-profit• Technology based• With a unique unfair advantage• Not limited to geographical boundaries• Scalable, hockey stick curve growth when product- market fit• e.g. : airbnb, kickstarter, square, songza
  • 3. Challenges• Raw data, sometimes not in a machine- readible format• Open data often related to a country or a city. Hardly scalable• Open data available to all, low barriers to entry• Often related to government services
  • 4. Elements of an open data startup
  • 5. Clarity of purpose• Lots of noise in open data. Large diversity of apps• Be able to summarize what you in the back of a business card... WITH LARGE LETTERS
  • 6. Painkiller• Think about delivering something amazing: pick one thing that is a burning importance to a customer (painkiller) then deliver a compelling solution• Can processed open data solve an existing problem?
  • 7. Large markets• Address big existing markets ready for rapid change. A market with a $1 B potential allows for error.
  • 8. Customers• Is there anyone willing to pay?• Listing a few people who pay a premium for your unique offering is a good first sign.• Often, open data apps can’t identify customers
  • 9. Think differently• Challenge what’s existing and take the contrarian route.• Idea: offer for free what’s sold by existing companies for a high price
  • 10. Technology is key• Spend only on great engineering. Be very frugal on everything else• Focus on stealth and speed of iteration• Open data ideas: build superior intelligence and integration with other services
  • 11. Outlook• very few startups -- land grab!• lots of interest and “sympathy capital”• Wealth of data previously unavailable• Being able to improve society
