Founding promoters

Our founding promoters are committed individuals who approach the future topics of “big data” and the data economy in all its facets with great interest and passion. They actively supported the DIO during its founding out of conviction. We are very pleased that many of the founding promoters have decided to remain actively involved in the DIO network after the founding phase.
