Nowhere is this more true than in the world of data products, where the express intent of our work is to deliver the best information, at the right moment, with the greatest possible speed. But data isn’t perfect. Sometimes it isn’t even there. Especially in an early stage startup. How do we get to market while our dataset is still under construction?
