Smart Data Foundry is a data innovation organisation, serving the public, private and third sector.  Our purpose is to inspire financial innovation and improve people’s lives by unlocking the power of financial data.  We aim to be the leading provider of real data for research and synthetic data for innovation. 

We provide synthetic data for innovation, enabling financial services organisations, FinTech’s and regulators to develop innovative solutions to industry and customer challenges.  

We are one of the first major data-themed partnerships following the launch of the University of Edinburgh’s Data-Driven Innovation (DDI) initiative, part of the City Region Deal. Under DDI, the University is creating a network of hubs to help organisations improve products and services through research coupled with high-powered data analytics.
