Why Brainsfeed

Why Building The World's Smartest Brain?
We’re in a knowledge-based economy. In most jobs, your brain is more important than your muscles.
The Information Age is booming! COVID-19 pushed even more human activities into the digital world. Which leads to even more data.
The only renewable energy for organisations is information. Knowledge assets are non-rivalrous. No CO2 emission when you share information.
Information or Data or Knowledge are the best competitive advantage. 
Any organisation with the right information can make the best decisions and thrive.

Knowledge is what makes us thrive, solve problems and that’s sustainable. BUT... 

1. Most of the safe information is paywall protected

In this age of misinformation, access to verified and relevant information comes at a cost that is out of reach for 99% of organizations, especially if they only need it sporadically.

2. Most databases offer only long term commitment solutions

You may need access to some information for a brief month-long project. Still, the knowledge providers require you to subscribe for a minimum term of 12 months.

Database Minimum Subscription Term
Statista 30days @1950USD and Annual @720USD
Pitchbook 1 Year
Chrunchbase 1 Year
Bloomberg 2 Years
Traxn 1 Year
Mattermark Professional 1 Year
Dealroom 1 Year
Factset 1 Year
CB Insights 1 Year
MorningStar 1 Year

3. The resources are Scattered across thousands of different websites.

Most business problems require a mix of solutions - resources, analysts, and databases, each of which is either difficult to obtain on short notice or at a price that does not justify the return on investment.

Information Provider Type of Data Provided Annual Cost (USD)
Guidestar Information on Nonprofits 2000-2500
Mattermark Financial Database Starts at 6000
Zoominfo B2B Leads Starts at 10,000

4. Source of Live Information is very often not available in databases while precious information is ONLY present in our Brains

The process of accessing knowledge that often provides the most direct response to basic questions about an industry's dynamics is too lengthy and expensive as it's not available on convenient "knowledge repositories" like Google but inside the brains of working humans.

5. Noise, Untrusted Sources & Gatekeeper. Most of the information is not on Google. While Google is where people search!

For nuanced answers to complicated problems, organizations need a specialist with a research strategy. The alternative - Google - gives you access to only 0.03% of the world's information while prioritizing ads and other Google services profitable to them.

Trends & Perspectives

1. Exponential increase in our Capacity to Store Information.

Our ancestors used cave paintings to pass on information, and today, in the information age, we have the power to store every detail of our lives. Our brains need to understand the past to imagine the future. Stay ahead of the curve by learning how to increase your reading speed from this Brainsfeed report.

2. Exponential Growth and Creation Automation 

IoT, 5G, Big Data. A revolution is underway. The volume of data is practically exploding by the day. We produce data even when our brains are not involved. Content creation robots are slowly gaining traction and by 2025, the “Knowledge Doubling Curve“ will show a doubling of all human knowledge every day.

3. Too Big Too Know

With an abundance of information available, the winners and losers will be determined by those who are able to better process, filter and analyze the firehose of information.

4. Robots Won’t Replace Biological Brains

Common sense and critical thinking are irreplaceable but many tasks can be automated. To filter, source, and organize we need both bots and brains. 


To cope with data explosion, information overload, 1 brain is not enough. A collective brain is necessary. We combine creativity, data science, research skills, to organise data and power businesses to navigate safely the information landscape.
