Our Services

Event Planning and Convening

We have planned and executed more than 25 Roundtables, convening more than 1,500 experts and practitioners. We plan virtual, hybrid, and in-person events with as few as a dozen and as many as 180 participants. Our wide network will get the right people to your event and our facilitation, project management, and research skills will ensure that it answers the right questions on time and budget.


We provide expert facilitation and support to organizations conducting convenings, workshops, roundtables, interviews, and other forms of structured, qualitative research. This includes event day facilitation services as well as pre-event work to develop facilitation guides, key questions, and other materials.

Our staff has 25 years of combined experience on open data policy and practice and have worked closely with a dozen government agencies and offices on their open data strategies and programs.

Research, Data Gathering, and Analysis

Our researchers explore a wide range of topics related to data use, including historical trends, policy, and public data sources.
