They say ’data is the new oil’. However, data differs from oil because it’s value can grow when it is shared. Open data is a growing global movement which offers exciting opportunities for citizens, (h)activists and entrepreneurs. Aaltoes presents a valuable insight into the world of open data especially for students and budding entrepreneurs. Open data has a huge potential in all kind of business, but a lot of it is going to waste. Insight is given with the focus on:

  •     Availability of open data
  •     The state and future
  •     Breaking into the business
  •     Forthcoming data opening from Finnish Meteorological institute
