Pycap presents 'Using Data for Venture Growth and Impact' at the Canadian Open Data Summit in Whitehorse, Yukon
On Nov. 8, 2022 Pycap CEO Stuart Browne conducted a presentation to the Open Data Summit in Whitehorse, Yukon. Stuart's presentation highlighted the importance and use of data access and analysis when making financial management decisions related to venture growth and investment.
The Canadian Open Data Summit (CODS), now evolving into the Canadian Open Data Society has been the annual event where the most pressing challenges facing the open data community are addressed on a national stage. Advocates from all sectors have come together to share best practices and local experiences, learn from top international experts, and grow the community strategically and collaboratively.
CODS is one of a suite of strong open data events and organizations across Canada, all of which demonstrate that the Canadian Open community has been rapidly gaining momentum over the past year. Overlapping circles of passionate citizens across Canada meet regularly to create partnerships, among them advancing two exciting near-term deliverables:
the Open Hub, a web portal/clearinghouse for Open information in Canada, now in alpha, soon to be at http://ouropenhub.ca ; and
a non-profit member-based entity to steer future CODS.
In addition, GO Open Data (the Ontario Open Data annual summit) is in its seventh year, there are efforts to federate open portals such as that in Niagara, and in May Canada hosted the Global Summit of the Open Government Partnership and many sister events. These are exciting times for the open movement.
CODS has been and remains a grassroots, community-led event. It began in 2013 in British Columbia. The volunteer national organizing committee decided in 2019 to incorporate and co-found the Canadian Open Data Society.
