About Data Republic – Helping the world decide wisely

We believe that when data can flow securely between individuals, organizations and governments, wiser decisions can be made and better outcomes delivered for both business and society as a whole.

The problem? Data exchange can be too legally complicated, risky and time-consuming.

That’s why, in 2014, our founders set out to change the way organisations exchange data – to make it safer, more secure and more scalable.

Today, our technology and ‘private by design’ ecosystem connects organisations to the data they need to tackle their most pressing business problems.

We’re proud to say that we’re backed by some big names (Westpac Reinventure, NAB Ventures, ANZ, Qualgro VC and Qantas Loyalty), but that doesn’t stop us from being a team that cares about start-up hustle, big ideas and sharing a beer on a Friday.
