In 2010 OpenCorporates was founded as an effort to identify where companies were based and how they linked across the world. It is now the largest open database of companies and company data, with over 138 million companies in a similarly large number of jurisdictions. Their primary goal is to make information on companies more usable and more widely available for the public benefit, particularly to tackle the use of companies for criminal or anti-social purposes, for example corruption, money laundering and organised crime.
Organized by the Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) at the Goldsmiths - University of London, this workshop will enable people and organisations to harness the power of this huge pool of data, giving participants the tools to explore the complex, connected world of corporate organisations.
