t/f/o/d part IV: Data & Entrepreneurship

Is an entrepreneur without data skills an ex-entrepreneur? We discussed Data & Entrepreneurship on the/futures/of/data part IV (27/04). 

The Futures of Data is a research project by Trendwolves, in which we ask ourselves how the endless amount of data that is created and gathered daily will impact our lives in the short and in the long run. This was part I (open data), part II (data & music) & part III (data & media) & The Futures of Data Conference. More: www.tfod.be

So you think data can transform business? You're damn right. That's why we investigated the link between data and entrepreneurship on april 27 in our offices in Ghent. How much data do you need in order to do business? How to hack your own business? And what's the exact value of data?  

Saskia Van Uffelen (ceo Ericsson Belux and author of Iedereen baas!) talked about new entrepreneurship, Dominique Laane (partner & head of operations @ Onak Canoes) reveiled how to crowdfund like a pro, and Toon Coppens (co-founder Realo, ex-Netlog) talked big, BIG data.
