Data Ventures is the commerical arm of Stats NZ, which functions as a trusted intermediary that pulls datasets from various sectors for later re-distribution to the platform's customers. The platform collects statistical data, government data, and private sector data, such as that from telecommunications companies.
Data Ventures serves as a trusted intermediary that provides platform for its customers to access the data that are trusted in their storage. For its first project, for example, they are "working with confidentialised data-sets from multiple companies, aggregating those to remove the ability to identify the source and then providing snapshots of population density."
From the website: "For each product we bring [multiple datasets] together while making that data confidential, complete and ready to sell to our customers to help them make fully informed, data-driven decisions."
