Join a New Community for Data Buyers.

Get exclusive access to the best external data and transparent pricing from leading sellers along with the resources you need to be successful—so you can buy with confidence. 

Meet and learn from other data professionals

Use insights to make better buying decisions 

Match to sellers by use case, industry, and more

There's a lot at stake- for the company and you- every time you buy external data.

Choose wrong, and you'll waste massive amounts of money and time on data that is poor quality or unethically sourced. Even worse, you can't use it. 

If you're like most data professionals, you want to be seen as the go-to expert in your company. In order for that to happen, you need to know the data you're buying is the best quality, is from an ethical source, and is priced right. 

The problem is, you can't easily find the best data—let alone know it will bring your company enough value to grow the bottom line and make it worth the investment.

What if you could connect with other like-minded data professionals, share your knowledge and expertise, and get back insights you can use to make better buying decisions? 

What if you could be matched with leading sellers based on use case and industry and know you're getting the best data for the right price?

Introducing Blue Street Data,

A community for people who purchase and manage external data.
After leading successful data-driven companies and consulting with countless clients, our founder saw firsthand how difficult it is for most businesses to buy quality data they can actually use. 
That's why we're launching Blue Street Data as the first venture for 1486 Labs, to enable an efficient marketplace for buying and selling data.
When you're part of a community of buyers with access to the best data and transparent pricing from leading sellers—and you have the resources you need to be successful—you can buy data with confidence and use it to fuel growth, drive innovation, and achieve competitive advantage.
