Inrupt, led by John Bruce, is an enterprise software company that aims to put online personal data back into the hands of users. It also innovates how governments and businesses manage digital data. Inrupt’s mission is to solve the problem of siloed and disconnected data for individuals, businesses and developers. The company’s Enterprise Solid Server platform, which is based on Berners-Lee’s open-source web technology Solid, enables businesses and governments to offer consumers and citizens personal data vaults — which bring together and store data from multiple, disconnected sources in a web standard format and allow individuals to decide which data to share across applications and services.
The startup – co-founded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee – also joins Accenture Ventures’ Project Spotlight program, an engagement and investment program that connects emerging technology software startups with the Global 2000 to fill strategic innovation gaps.
