Next week we will be interviewing David Buxton, founder and CEO at Arachnys “Bringing some clarity to emerging markets”.
Arachnys helps you carry out business research.
Most of us spend too much time looking for data that gives us a valuable edge, because we haven’t, until now, had efficient research tools. In emerging markets, it’s even harder. Data availability varies wildly from country to country, data is often unsearchable, sometimes it’s in different languages and scripts, and that is just a few of the issues. Understanding bias and reliability requires specialised local expertise. At Arachnys, they have specialised technology to find what you’re looking for regardless of information source, language or format.
I love this product. It reminds me of the first startup that I was involved in called Panjiva. Panjiva aggregates trade data from around the would, to provide customers with information on their competitors sourcing strategies, trusted manufactures, and risk analysis on their own factories. Information aggregation’s such as this, give us the tools that we need to make smarter more well educated decisions.
Look out for the interview coming soon! David will be talking about the startup process, updating us on the progress of Arachnys and sharing his advice on starting a business and laying out your business plan.
