In recent years, Linked Data technologies have started to gain traction
within many established enterprises. Innovative businesses founded on
Linked Data technologies, however, are still scarce. This is
unfortunate, because startup businesses stimulate innovation, drive
technological change, and spur economic growth. Taking our inspiration
from the international startup culture which has emerged not just in
Silicon Valley, but cities like Austin, Tel Aviv, Singapore, Toronto,
London, Dublin, Berlin etc., we propose a workshop to discuss Startups
in the area of Linked Data technologies. The objectives of the workshop
are twofold: (i) to provide a platform for presenting innovative startup
ideas where Linked Data technologies help to solve real-world problems
and (ii) to present success and failure stories to encourage discussion
on the specific opportunities and challenges that startups are facing in
this domain. To this end, we solicit a wide range of perspectives on
technological, economic, legal, and market factors affecting Linked
(Open) Data ventures.


Linked Data startup proposals:

*We are particularly interested in exploring:
-Open Data business models in the Linked Open Data ecosystem
-New business models for commercial use of Linked Open Data
-Emerging Linked Closed Data business models
-Linked Enterprise Data business models

*Linked Data startup proposals should address questions such as the
-What problem do you plan to solve (better) with Linked Data and/or
Semantic -Web technologies?
-What is the status quo of the solutions to the problem?
-Who are your competitors?
-What are the novel aspects of your proposal?
-What is the potential social, environmental, and economic impact?
-How viable is your proposal in terms of technological and economic

Linked Data startup case studies (succeeded or failed):

*We are particularly interested in exploring:
-Challenges for Linked Data product and service development
-Barriers for Linked Data product and service adoption
-Business opportunities in emerging Linked Data value chains
-Drivers of Linked Data product and service adoption
-Technological and standardization gaps
-Use of business development methods (business model canvas, lean
startup, etc.) for Linked Data startups
-Lessons learned from being a Linked Data startup

*Linked Data startup case studies should address questions such as the
-What problem are you or did you intend to solve better with Linked Data
and/or Semantic Web technologies?
-Who are/were your competitors?
-Which are the main challenges you are/were facing?
-Why did your idea succeed/fail?

Format and Submission Procedure

The objectives of the workshop are twofold: to foster startup ideas and
to encourage discussion around business drivers and opportunities and to
identify potential barriers from both a technological and a
standardisation perspective. In order to promote such discussion we
propose three types of submissions, all of them either in short paper
(2-4 pages) format or presentation slides:

-Linked Data Startup Pitch:
Present your Linked Data startup idea and business model. Submissions to
this category qualify for the LD startup challenge that will be held
during the workshop.

-Linked Data Startup Success Stories:
Share the story of your successful Linked Data Startup.

-Linked Data Startup Post Mortem Studies:
Share the story on why your Linked Data Startup (idea) did not succeed.
