DataTalon helps SMEs to harness the power of data


Growing start-up moves into Sciontec AI workspace in The Spine to increase Liverpool connections.

Having won the ‘Most Enterprising Student’ award and graduating with a Degree in Engineering from the University of Liverpool in 2013, Stuart Brown firmly believed that Liverpool was a city that he wanted to stay in and build a business within.

Fast forward 10 years and Stuart has now achieved his goal, launching DataTalon in 2023 to bridge the gap between data and informed decisions.

His smart data consultancy has also recently accomplished another milestone, having moved into its first official workspace in the Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) innovation district last month.

Stuart Brown, Founder of DataTalon, said:

“We were attracted to Sciontec’s workspaces because of their existing customer base of research and technology focused organisations, in both Liverpool Science Park and The Spine.

“Moving into the Sciontec AI workspace in The Spine has already opened up a number of opportunities for us to meet other innovative companies and help grow our network of potential customers and collaborators.”

Increased exposure to other like minded start-ups was the first step in DataTalon’s ambitious growth plans, with recruitment next on the agenda. Currently, the DataTalon team consists of Founder Stuart Brown, alongside a wealth of freelance Data Scientists, Analysts, Researchers, Engineers, and Digital Marketing Specialists, with plans to increase the full time headcount in the coming months.

Together, the DataTalon team provides a wide range of services for customers, including data visualisation, predictive analytics, and digital strategy formation, providing organisations with greater insight into their business activities, thus enabling smarter decision making.

DataTalon’s current customer base includes a leading e-commerce company, for whom they act as a virtual Chief Data Officer, as well as two recent contract wins with partner agencies in Manchester and Denmark, helping with the integration of their service platforms and creating holistic data strategies.

With plans to connect with additional businesses across the e-commerce, research, social housing, engineering, warehousing and logistics sectors within the Liverpool City Region, DataTalon are busy attending networking events and making new connections within the local business community. They have also just launched a new website which demonstrates their services across the dynamic landscape of digital transformation.

Stuart Brown added:

“Looking ahead, I want DataTalon to become the go-to agency for data consultancy in Liverpool and I am excited to see what the future holds next for us.”
