Our mission is to democratize personal data by establishing an open, fair marketplace for individuals to sell their personal data.
At Datacoup, we strive, above all else, to empower the individual. Datacoup's mission is to democratize the power of personal data, and enable the individual to benefit from an asset they create each and every day.
While large enterprise gets wealthy from monetizing our personal data, we, as consumers, are left with little more than a targeted ad. The consumer has been completely lost in the shuffle of advertising, technology and big data.
Through an easy to use user interface and demand-driven pricing, Datacoup equips the user to control the distribution of their own data. We employ the highest of security standards to ensure that consumers can safely maximize the value of their data assets.
Matt spent most of his prior career toiling in the bond markets on Wall Street. Since entering the startup world, Matt has been focused on empowering consumers with their own data. He's a product of New York, but spent years in San Francisco. The verdict? Alley over Valley. Friend and family to many, waterbug, occasional cook, poker, chess and sharks.
Aside from running the servers and checking code behind Datacoup's technology, Reki keeps busy by staying current with computers, internet memes, and sushi. With a background in computer science and architecture, Reki enjoys quick breaks from hardcore programming sessions with walks around the scenic NYC streets. You can find this data-hungry nerd zoned-in at the office or waiting aimlessly for next train home.
Prior to Datacoup, Casey co-founded a web design shop, a failed startup and a community volunteer organization. While it is a pleasure working with his fine Datacoup brethren, he prefers to spend his free time skiing, hiking, camping and making dinners outdoors with his wife and an extremely grumpy pug.
