About Us

Ontopic's origin and mission

We founded Ontopic as a spin-off of the Free University of Bolzano-Bozen to develop innovative products and services in the field of data integration and data access through the emerging technology of virtual knowledge graphs (VKG).

We empower organizations to understand and make use of their data. We do so by virtually combining data from different sources into an always up-to-date knowledge graph, which is easy to explore and allows for new insights and better business decisions.
