    Welcome to the NR Investor Lounge. Given the number of mining opportunities that NR Private Market reviews, we thought it beneficial to our investor base and mining news subscribers to offer further insight into some of the companies that have passed our proprietary vetting process.


Personal data is the currency of the global digital economy. 

There is a $4 Trillion dollar market that we all participate in, but that none of us gets full value from. It’s the market that fuels Companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon. It’s the market for our personal data.

The CitizenMe platform democratises this trillion dollar digital economy and unlocks vast untapped value. It  enables the people to easily choose how they share data, all controlled via their own Smartphones with their own AI. This partnership gives companies and brands a profoundly better understanding of their customers, enable them to delighting them, create innovative new services, and accelerate growth.

Market Situation:

Currently, personal data is extracted from people in huge volumes by companies like Facebook and Google. However, as the personal data sharing is not explicitly consented to, data is often incomplete and of low quality. By liberating the data, we enable everyone to unlock its full value. This makes the entire digital economy exponentially more valuable for companies, and people, in equal measure.

The market is undergoing a massive change. With new regulation in Europe and the USA, combined with moves by Apple and Google to limit personal data tracking outside of their own services, the ‘supply’ of personal data is being disrupted. Meanwhile, the Covid epidemic has accelerated demand for digital services.


The CitizenMe team has created a cutting-edge ‘ZeroData’ technology. It’s the world’s leading next-generation personal data service, and is already in use by people in multiple countries and by many major brands. We believe it is the future of the Personal Data ecosystem – it is vastly more efficient because it manages data in ‘the right way’.

CitizenMe monetises this ‘ZeroData’ technology by charging clients a percentage fee for each data transaction. App users receive value for their consented data, and our clients benefit from much richer refined data. CitizenMe also licences the core platform technology to consumer brands with millions of customers.

As the market leader, CitizenMe is perfectly placed to capitalise on the global market transition underway. Three hundred thousand ‘Citizens’ are already signed up, and deals have recently been signed with a major US Telco, a Global Credit Card company, and a UK Govt department. Quarterly revenues are doubling. More major deals are in the works.
