About Public Insight
Our founding team has built several successful data analytics software companies. In 2012, the team began to investigate the potential applications for public data, and they immediately found that public data was housed in silos that were not easily accessed, combined, or analyzed. Thus, after an initial proof of concept Public Insight (formerly 360-Public) was born and the team began to put these pieces together into one unified analytics platform.
Today, Public Insight has created a large and powerful database comprised of billions of data points, and developed tools that make it easy for leaders in the fields of education and healthcare to gain insights from the data that drive their decision-making.
We are passionate about turning public and licensed data into actionable insights.
