On the heels of our sponsorship of last month’s Startup Weekend LA, Factual will be one of the sponsors of the next two Startup Weekends. Next week is Global Entrepreneurship Week, a Kauffman Foundation-founded initiative that annually introduces millions of young people around the world to entrepreneurship. In over 25 cities around the world – from Seattle to Beirut – entrepreneurs and developers will gather to participate in a 54 hour event to build new companies, products, and applications.
Factual is pleased to announce we’ve signed on two new partners, Home Junctionand Booyah, who will be accessing and contributing to our local datasets. In addition, we’re also delivering local data for Facebook Placesin the UK and Japan.
