The Datacoup mission has been constant since our founding: Empower consumers to benefit, economically, from the valuable data they create every day.
Our data is shackled in centralized databases and controlled and profited from by the companies, and platforms that own these databases. Think social networks, search engines, banks, telecoms, device makers and other central silos.
Reclaiming, unlocking and taking control are just the first few steps toward true data emancipation.
Working closely with consumer data in his prior Finance career, Matt experienced first hand how inefficient the market for personal data was for both businesses and individuals. In 2013, he founded Datacoup, the revolutionary consumer-controlled marketplace for personal data.
Reki is a software engineer at datacoup, where he strategizes and builds all things technical including application development, infrastructure and data engineering. He joined the mission at Datacoup knowing how important personal control of data will be in any emerging web technology.
Having been an ardent 'Never Facebooker', Casey joined Datacoup to break down the internet's personal data silos and bring back consumer control. Prior to Datacoup, Casey ran a small but busy design and development agency.
