Mash Up | Open Data – What the hack?

You have probably heard the buzzwords “Open Data” and/or “Big Data” and that this is one of the biggest things coming at us the next decade. But what is hidden behind these terms? Will data primarily have a positive or threatening influence on our lives? How will it impact citizens? How will it impact our economy? Is data not just relevant, but can it also be sexy?

In partnership with Open Data Switzerland, we invite you to our Viadukt event space for an evening of eye-opening talks on the topic of Data!



  • André Golliez, Founder of, the swiss division of the Open Knowledge Foundation
  • A representative of LIIP, a provider for open government data platforms
  • Flurin Capaul, Founder of Boonea AG, a Start Up


  • 6.30pm Doors Open
  • 6.45pm Introduction by Impact Hub Zürich
  • 7 pm Speakers
  • 8 pm Apéro & Networking


MashUps are monthly community events happening simultaneously at Impact Hubs throughout the world, this time in Vienna, London Kings Cross, Prague and Sao Paolo, where three selected Impact Hub members get a chance to share their ideas in Pecha Kucha format and can get on-the-spot feedback and questions from the audience. You can expect an entertaining and engaging evening where, besides getting inspired by the story shared by the participants, you can hear updates on what’s happening at your local Impact Hub and meet like-minded individuals over a networking drink.
