A little bit about mappd

A little bit about mappd

Mappd was born as a concept back in 2017 when founder Harrison Mussell  was working in the banking industry as a security consultant, helping transform the way the organisations used personal data. It was during this and the preparations for the General Data Protection Regulation [(GDPR) that he had identified that there where huge opportunities for consumers to benefit from the GDPR rather than it being so focused around businesses meeting compliance.

Through these experiences, the motivations that built mappd started to form. Namely;

Businesses and individuals can both benefit through trust and transparency

Businesses are getting better at understanding this but in our opinion, this is no way near the level that it could be, and this is where mappd aims to disrupt.

Fast forward to February 2018 and an acceptance onto the Bethnal Green Ventures, Tech For Good accelerator and mappd became a reality.
