Big data is big business these days. If you can find free data on the scale you need, it wouldn't be a business at all.
We're pulling APIs from Foursquare but for the most part we really want to crowdsource original content from people who can provide value in the industry we're in. We just need enough info to get the ball rolling.
What are your thoughts on these strategies? If you have any other suggestions, comments, or recommendations, gladly bring them my way. Thanks guys.
