The Open Government Data Initiative (OGDI)
OGDI supports entrepreneurs and investors by providing them with access to financial data available at 11 Palestinian government entities. The long term objective is to provide Palestinian startups and enterprises with open data that will help them study and adapt to market changes. Through this product, Leaders International aims to promote the values and benefits of ” Open Data” and facilitate the public’s access to information that enables them to make informed business decisions. Open data will allow entrepreneurs and even large businesses to get access to a vast amount of information to understand the market better and assess the potential for investment and growth. This data-driven strategy will ultimately generate new projects, initiatives, and research, and therefore, accelerate economic development and innovation. To this date, a network of eight governmental institutions has committed to sharing their information and data sets through OGDI’s online platform.
