Data + Innovation = Insight

Creating user-friendly data to build a wiser, kinder world

OUR VISION

We act as a catalyst to organizations who are ready to make best use of their data, to tell their story to a broad audience, or to assist with decision-making and policy development. We help to build a pathway to better knowledge by creating user-friendly data to build a wiser1, kinder2 world.

1 Wiser because your data is presented in a uniquely extensive and interconnected framework.

 

2 Kinder because when people are given the tools to help them find answers easily and gain real insight, they are more likely to interact from a co-operative rather than a confrontational place.

WHAT WE DO

Working in collaboration with our clients, we:

  • Identify concepts, issues and challenges related to data, information and knowledge
  • Conceptualize potential solutions using leading edge tools such as interactive visualizations, natural language extraction applications, and others
  • Act as project lead and work with other contractors
  • Bring teams together to create and implement the solutions we recommend

Our Catalyst Projects Offer:

Innovative, transformative data visualization

We conceptualize, structure, and implement transformative projects using design-centric data visualization as a data culture change agent. 

Unprecedented opportunities for
pan-organizational teamwork 

By pulling together teams that include insiders and outsiders, we not only create a team committed to telling your story visually, we build an institutional understanding that working co-operatively to create well-planned and designed data can result in insights at every level.

Policy development to support digital innovation

We partner with forward thinkers to formulate and propose policies that ensure data is used to facilitate decisions and empower citizens.
