Dawex will contribute to the Data Policy platform, a work group leading the Forum’s approach to data policy and data governance. The aim is to help define and implement forward-looking, interoperable, and trustworthy data policies to fuel innovation and accelerate responsible use of data in the new globally integrated data economy.

With this nomination, Dawex joins policymakers and private sector leaders to help define the global agenda on key issues.

“We are very honored to be named Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. It confirms data exchanges are playing a central role in today’s global economy,” says Laurent Lafaye, Dawex co-CEO. “Being invited to join the Data Policy work group is an acknowledgement of the importance of Dawex mission to create the conditions for the smooth development of the data economy by facilitating the exchange of data between companies and organizations.”

Dawex is breaking ground for French Tech and for data companies as, since 2007, it is the first French data company to receive this distinction and only 8 French companies have been named “Tech Pioneers” by the World Economic Forum.

Data exchange is an innovation enabler and unlocks the value of data, renewing the way public and private organizations collaborate. This is shaping a promising future.”
