Data isn't particularly helpful unless it can be easily understood, which is why this data publishing startup focuses on comprehensible visualizations specifically for entrepreneurs who don't have technical backgrounds. Based in London, DataPress is an open data publishing platform takes raw data from the government transforms it into easy to analyze resources for business people and community members.

Governments and local councils in the United Kingdom are increasingly making such information more widely available to the public. DataPress makes it easier for citizens to take it and utilize it. The cloud-based platform gives governments a way to easily release data and works alongside civil servants to create data visualizations, which becomes a public utility.

Entrepreneurs, researchers and developers will certainly benefit from this service.
