Opportunities for startups

When people get access to data, organisations innovate faster and startups create better products with real impact. We call this open innovation and it’s at the heart of what we do.

People to talk to about Opportunities for startups

With the ODI startup programmes we connect data-driven startups with private and public sector organisations that face challenges that data can help solve. We then leverage our trusted partners and  network of experts to support them in this journey.

Since 2012, we have run 11 different innovation programmes and supported a total of 191 early-stage startups in 25 countries across Europe, Central America and ASEAN region, at various stages of maturity, from idea to seed stage. These companies have generated an aggregated impact of £66m in revenue and investment and have created over 600 new jobs.

About our programmes

The programmes are either delivered either in-house by our very own ODI team or in partnership with third parties.

So far the programmes have focused on startups and SMEs that work with open or shared data sets adhering to an open innovation approach. While the majority of the programmes are sector agnostic, some of them focus on specific verticals depending on the external partners and clients we work with.

Our experienced team can help corporates and public sectors to unlock the value of data, drive innovation and be competitive in the digital transformation of their sectors. This, in turn, boosts the wider economy whilst creating social impact.
