MyData

Fostering Trust

Only a conscious commitment to empower customers can halt the current downward spiral of trust in digital engagement.

Backed by a commitment to build a product or service development culture that respects privacy built on security.

Advocating Privacy

Digital privacy is needed for a free digital society

Privacy will not become ubiquitous until it becomes a commercial asset

The first freedom should be from location tracking. No other data gives such deep insight to who you are



GDPR Consultancy

At Krowdthink we see the GDPR & the upcoming E-Privacy Regulation as a driver of market change, and change means business opportunity.

We are practitioners, experienced in building GDPR ready product and business models for a more heavily legislated era.

Our focus is SME’s, start-ups and their investors – for companies seeking to become GDPR ready, or due diligence support on ‘personal data use’ for current or prospective business investments.


Innovating Co-location

Unlocking location value for citizens & places, whilst sustaining location privacy, is achieved through the insight that it’s the co-location of people that is important, not their location

The Krowd App...


Smart Cities

The strategic challenge is to maximise the revenue opportunity for the local economy 



Fostering digital engagement in places keeps the data value local and maximises return on investment to the city.
