Kali Jakobi, the host of Data Disruption, takes a deep dive into the importance of data transparency while giving an overview of Mercatus and how it began in 2009 as an investment bank with a focus on private markets. She describes the issues that founders, Haresh Patel and Tim Buchner, faced surrounding data, reporting, and decision making and how they took the problems into their own hands to solve. Thus, Mercatus, as we know it today, was born as a modern data management platform for private market investors that provides the flexibility, speed, and data quality required in a new data driven environment. Tune in to kick off our journey on Data Disruption with weekly episodes and join the conversation on the future of data technology in the private markets.
