For those still wondering about the "what" part, Linked Business has managed to create a live super-registry of the Greek enterprise universe, based on open public data, in which business entities (both companies and individuals) are positioned and interconnected inside their ideal market. This super-registry provides the complete set of analytics and decision-making tools for all market sectors in Greece, as well as all the data (sales leads & points of sale) for the design and execution of the most effective sales strategies.
Entrepreneurship based on big data!
As Michalis Vafopoulos stressed:
"We are proud to have succeeded in making use of a decade’s efforts behind the lab to provide effective market analysis services in B2B sales lead generation as well as in KYC, due diligence and internal auditing.
Open data, particularly those relating to the economy and businesses, are part of the "oxygen" of democracy and innovation. We all need to know, without any barriers, basic information about a business such as ownership, management and location and, how public money is used. Based on these publicly available data, we are constantly building tools to improve business performance."
