Leeds data and analysis business The Data City is to create 10 new jobs and expects to double revenue to £1million this year.

The business has recently made a number of new appointments across its development and analysis teams including spatial-analysis expert Fatima Garcia Elena, UX designer Matt Martin, client strategist Matt Childs and biophysicist developer Dan Billingsley.

It also opened an Amsterdam office last year to enable future international growth.

The Data City is a Data as a Service (DaaS) company, providing data on the companies and sectors that are driving the emerging economy.

Its technology overcomes the deficiencies in standard industrial classifications (SIC codes) historically used by most governments and research bodies and is increasingly being adopted as the new standard in data for economic analysis.

Alex Craven, founder and CEO, said: “We’re winning new clients by being able to produce data sets and analysis that no-one else can. Our technology and analysts produce data and insight on the size, shape, geography and innovation in any sector.

“The gaps in industrial data are a huge issue in 2021, as policy makers and investors are looking for opportunities to support newly emerging sectors like energy management, AI, AgriTech and net zero as part of the recovery from Covid-19 and Brexit.”

The company has recently won a series of contracts with central government and expects to be a team of 20 by the end of 2021.
