About Us
Based in the UK, Didobi provides specialist independent advice and consultancy services to real estate professionals, retailers and Government.

Didobi was founded in 2018 by two highly-regarded experts in the world of data, Matthew Hopkinson, formerly founding director of the Local Data Company, and Matt Richardson, formerly Research and Strategy Director at Fidelity International. They identified a lack of independent, practical and experienced expertise in the interpretation and monetisation of data. Didobi provides access to a a unique and highly experienced team of independent freelance specialists.
