About the artist
OpenCorporates aims to have a URL for every company in the world. It is the largest open database of companies in the world, and with over 90 million companies in over 100 jurisdictions. OpenCorporates’ hybrid public-benefit business model has also made it a beacon for such open data companies, and was earlier this year recognised in this pioneering work with the award of the Best Open Data Business by the Open Data Institute.
2010 – present
With over 85,500,000 organisations included,OpenCorporates is the largest open database of company information in the world. Importantly, it reveals links, company licenses and sometimes even corruption in areas that would otherwise be hidden.
