Transform data management in presumed high risk areas

We build applications for local businesses and NGOs to digitise and securely handle their information, improve their performance and raise their profile.

Commoditise' data to support local stakeholders' intervention

Users of our applications or connected software can keep track of their information, set up their own wallet and find more clients for their data.

Access to reliable data in logistically-challenged regions

Datastake bridges the information gap where traditional research struggles, through consolidation of structured data from local witnesses.


Raising confidence through consistent data compilation across applications

Datastake already supports collaboration among mining & mineral trade stakeholders, to facilitate concerted risk management, and promote synergies between international development experts and the private sector.

Information compiled locally is organised into granular data, so that holders can identify more uses for it, and monetise their on-site knowledge

Through consolidation of structured data from multiple sources, clients can better manage risk, measure impact and identify engagement opportunities.

Applications tailored to weak-governance countries enable local stakeholders to reclaim their narrative

As local actors improve their information management, their work becomes relevant to a broader range of global partners seeking sustainable triangulation.


We help our clients build custom applications to leverage the platform

Our team can help design scalable software to meet your organisation's specific compilation and reporting objectives while connecting with other information sources and potential data clients.


Consolidated Autonomous Due Diligence
