  • Finalizing deployment of non-digi.me sources Netflix and Amazon which will allow data to be stored on-device instead of digi.me
  • Working to deploy an entirely new UI for initial onboarding screens
  • Bug reports are down nearly 90% YAY!


  • Working to deploy Looker which will allow clients to more easily visualize data and run machine learning models while also sharing back insights with YOU after you swipe to send.
  • Developing a web app/extension to allow for easy linking & downloading of data from sources (We've learned that several we do have are not as lucrative or not enough people were linking the accounts via digi.me so we have slightly shifted our focus to rapidly add the most valuable sources that digi.me was unable to integrate with (like Netflix!).
  • Added Intercom to allow clients to chat with our sales and BD team inside the portal
  • Added fraud detection tools to flag duplicate data and poor responses
  • Added methodology to local notifications to prioritize early members


  • Working to finalize project scope with 3 fortune 500 brands for high paying studies! YAY!!

It may seem like UBDI has slowed down, but we promise we've been hard at work developing the infrastructure to make this business as sustainable and profitable for you as possible. This means quickly adapting to what our clients want, while minimizing the effort it takes you to get it to them. For example, a client recently requested Netflix for a large study about viewing behavior, so we've added it on-device without the need for digi.me (should be live soon!). We're constantly developing features that give you back your most valuable data, ultimately allowing us to match you with the companies that can't get it anywhere else. Selling something that companies shared with one another for free can be difficult at times, but the first hand-full of sales are always the hardest. We can't thank you enough for sticking with us as we disrupt an industry that can be hesitant to trust new-entrant. If you know the right person to help us sell the UBDI platform to companies and researchers, shoot us a message because we're hiring!
