Data Republic, which in May raised $10.5 million from a list of high profile investors including Qantas, NAB and Westpac, today launched what it calls a world first Open Data Marketplace.

The platform is a governed marketplace for organisations to list, exchange and collaborate on data exchange projects in a secure environment. Co-founder and CEO Paul McCarney, says the marketplace will help solve the challenges organisations face when trying to negotiate access to proprietary data.

“The lure of significant productivity and social benefits has driven an increase in government open data policies and data sharing among corporates,” he says.
