How data.world is leading the world’s largest collaborative community

July 10, 2019


Mark Godley talks with Brett Hurt, CEO & Co-Founder of Data.World. This is a great, informative show because Mark and Brett’s data values align. Brett believes that data is liberating and data can lead to all types of epiphanies...which is what the team at LeadGenius preaches daily.

Tune in to hear how your company, B2B or B2C, can leverage data.world’s open data sets that make up the largest collaborative data community...oh and it has a user-friendly interface that was not built for gurus and quants, just normal sales and marketing folks. They discuss:

  • Why data is liberating
  • The definition of a graft database
  • How data.world is the world's largest collaborative community
  • How data is transforming the way F500 do business
  • The future of a database-driven culture in retail, healthcare, and B2B 
  • How to catalog your data
  • Learn why you must build a data-driven culture
  • How to wake-up your hidden workforce
