#12: Matt Partridge | CEO & Founder, Infabode
News content & analysis is available in ever-growing quantities. While this can offer huge advantages, it poses several problems; how can you ensure you're accessing the most relevant content for you without being overwhelmed, while also remaining in touch with the latest ideas from various sources.
Matt Partridge, founder of Infabode. Infabode is an online information platform for the global real estate market, connecting its users with companies producing market news and data, through an online platform that users can configure to suits their needs and interests. Since launching in 2016, Infabode now has over 450 companies contributing news, analysis and data for an audience of over 17,000.
Matt & I discuss the opportunities presented by customisation of news, data and analysis and how to avoid the pitfall of data overload.
The next steps for content provision in the industry, as seen by Matt are implementing AI to use news more intuitively (e.g. by geo-tagging news stories so they become searchable by location) and integration within other Proptech platforms, such as Infabode's collaborations with Realla & Coyote.
We discuss the value of data and how it may be monetised in the future. Is the value in the data or the ability to interpret it?
While real estate may seem an unlikely target for fake-news, content providers will likely be judged on their ability to verify their content and Matt discusses Infabode's approach to dealing with this.
