A Successful Foray into the European Alternative Data Market

On September 26th and 27th, 2018, we hosted our first Alternative Data Discovery Day event in Europe (London, England to be exact). All told, we facilitated over 1,600 one-on-one meetings between data providers and data buyers and hosted a variety of panel discussions around the industry's current hottest topics. Below, you'll find a recap of the event as well as its top highlights.

From the CEO

We would like to thank everyone who attended for making this Alternative Data Discovery Day our biggest BattleFin event to date! All told, we had over 380 attendees (including over 70 data companies and over 240 hedge funds and investment firms) and over 1,600 meetings in just one day.

Attendees heard from the best-of-the-best from panels discussing hot topics around the satellite industry, finding Signal in alternative data, web scraping for investment ideas, and other investment strategies. I learned so much from this Discovery Day and I hope everyone who attended found it fun, insightful, and beneficial.

Now, onward to Hong Kong (November 6th, 2018) and Miami (January 29th)!
