As you may have read a thousand times data is the new oil. This data market today is mainly dominated by US based companies, with China on the rise. Beside a lot of regulatory like GDPR European startups and SMEs seem to have a hard time becoming a relevant player in this important field.

Write content for people, not machines!

First of all, I’d like to point out that this conference was entirely in German, just so no one is intrigued by this recap and then realizes they can’t go after all (and you shall be intrigued).

What an intense two days those were in Hamburg!
