The marketplace for business data

What’s new with dmi.io?

Posted 2016-06-18 by Jacob Ablowitz

Our dmi.io journey took an exciting turn last month when we joined the Boomtown Accelerator program. As part of the program we are working with mentors including some leading names in the professional services worlds (including the marketing and consulting industries). Based upon their advice plus our own experiences we are renewing our focus upon understanding the needs of our buyers. This already appears to be yielding returns, as we’ve started unearthing some pretty rich discoveries on buyer needs and patterns.

With that in mind, if you’re in the marketing, consulting, and/or data science worlds and have a passion for getting better data to give you that edge, we’d love to hear from you to learn more about how we can help. Please feel free to browse our current listings as well, but please be aware that we have temporarily deprioritized building out our inventory as we develop a better understanding of what buyers value most and continue through this period of rapid evolution.
