Ocean Protocol aims to unlock data from silos so it can be used productively. To realize this mission, we’re pleased to announce that we partnered with Next Billion and Unilever Foundry.
NextBillion creates data platforms to gather customer insights, offering fair value for data, while giving flexible, cost-competitive insights to companies. These insights help companies to expand effectively in emerging markets by respecting local customs, norms and preferences. With these types of Win-Win partnerships, the livelihoods for people are improved.
Unilever Foundry supports NextBillion by being an anchor customer and using their data and AI services that are built on Ocean Protocol technology.
