Our story

While the production and consumption of goods and services has been taking place since the earliest days of civilization, the world economy began to grow in earnest with the formation of business exchanges. Thousands of years ago, the idea of a Commodity Exchange was formed, followed by the creation of Stock Exchanges in the 14th Century. Continued global innovation has created a third economic exchange pillar and it's making history right now: Data Exchange.

In today’s economy, data has become a product of unlimited potential, with its own value, and a source of new revenue streams. The circulation of data has never been so crucial to address the world’s most pressing challenges. To facilitate global data exchange and deliver maximum value to stakeholders, Dawex is leading the way with cutting-edge data exchange technology.

Fabrice Tocco and Laurent Lafaye bring 20+ years of experience working for and developing data-focused companies. In 2015, they recognized the need for a structured marketplace for global data exchange regardless of industry. Both experts in platform technology, data exchange business, new digital economy challenges, and in local and global data regulations, they founded Dawex.

In 2017, Dawex launched the Dawex Global Data Marketplace for organizations around the globe, from all industries, to exchange, acquire, distribute and monetize data in a traceable, trusted and secure environment. A year later, Dawex brought the Data Exchange Platform to market, a data exchange solution where organizations can orchestrate data circulation by sourcing, exchanging and commercializing data with their ecosystem.

Licensed to organizations in a white-labelled mode, the platform supports multiple data exchange use cases, including internal data exchange, data sourcing, free data sharing, data monetization and data marketplace orchestration between multiple third-parties.

Today multiple organizations in 20+ industries worldwide rely on Dawex for data exchange technology to foster innovation, offer new products and services, optimize business efficiency and productivity, generate new revenue streams and increase company’s value as a whole.

In March 2020, Dawex launched the COVID-19 Data Exchange, a pro bono initiative aiming at facilitating the access and exchange of non-personal data between public and private organizations to curb the virus’ propagation and limit its economic impact.

Major research firms are recognizing Dawex as the leading Data Exchange Platform solutions provider.
