'Digital' has changed the roles of the state, the government, the private sector, start-ups, and the civil society. Nevertheless, using an open data approach, a governing body can create the foundation for a lasting, sustainable progress.

Get insights from – a Swiss civic-tech startup dealing with open government data (#ogd). We collect, aggregate, refine those data and make them useful. Thus, transparency in politics is enhanced on a large scale just by using existing data. In fact, the whole political process gets immediately much more trustworthy and relevant for all stakeholders, especially the people.
