Team
Business model

We intent to build a single API that offers platform and search developers a single connection to the majority of SME data-sets on the web.  This 2-way connection will be monetized via transaction costs, update costs, and costs to pull data.

Competitive advantage

We compete with data aggregators (Factual), individual platforms (Allmenus), search engines (Google), and web designers.  We are unique in that we connect directly to source data, unique in that we publish to multiple channels, and unique in that we're first and foremost an advocate for the publishing business.  This combination creates a unique data channel.
