Fwd: Michael, cash-in on open data: You're invited!

Interesting. Certainly want to hear if this works to attract corporate users, in light of the promise in the draft plan around commercialization.

Cash-in on Open Data (Webinar)

Tuesday, July 26 at 12:00pm EDT


Michael, we would like to invite you to our first webinar, Cash-in on Open Data.


Are you a marketer, finance professional, product manager, developer or founder?


Do you need data to find customers, power your product, or improve your operations?


Then join Joseph Bou-Younes from Canada's Open Data Exchange (ODX) for this hour-long webinar.


Open data is data that is free to use by anyone, for any purpose.


Governments across Canada publish hundreds of thousands of data sets, and more are added daily.


Learn how companies are benefitting by using open data, and how you can do the same. Specifically learn

  • What open data is
  • How companies are already using it
  • How to get started
  • How to gain access to data, tools, expertise and developer time through ODX

Participants will learn how to identify which levels of government have the kinds of data they need, locate useful data sets, apply tools and techniques for bringing open data into their company, and close skill or resource gaps in their organization to make effective use of open data.

Participants will also learn about obstacles to the commercialization of open data and how to overcome them.
