I have noticed an interesting trend in the Nigeria, where several companies need data but can’t access it because some other company is sitting on it. For example, Pay later needs savings information about someone who wants to borrow money, why can’t they approach Piggybank (or similar venture) for said data. Why do they have to deploy their own service?
This article suggests that even the government agency, N.I.T.D.A, doesn’t oppose the idea.
So I am back to my question, “Why don’t tech companies (including startups) share data with each other?”
