Want to know what type of shipping activity is occurring at a potential acquisition target or how recent economic reports affect foot traffic? Data collected from public spaces (through satellites, drones, or captured from cameras) can give investors valuable insights, but can also raise privacy issues. Potential unauthorized image capture and equipment malfunction are among the factors to consider when contemplating alternative data collection. Backed by popular demand and a desire to do something other than write another blog, we’re following up our first video “How to Disclose Endorsements and Still Generate Business” with the next installment of our 2017 video series, “Adventures in Alternative Data.” Watch, enjoy, and hold your applause for when we make our appearance at the 2018 Academy Awards.
