More than 400 years ago a Danish nobleman named Tycho Brahe spent most of his adult life collecting data of the night sky. Then he died. But his young assistant, Johannes Kepler, would go on to use Brahe’s data to formulate the three laws of planetary motion. Because Brahe dedicated his whole life to gathering all that data, Kepler is now cemented into history.

This is the on-ramp to our member company KeenIO. As founder Ryan Spraetz explains it, Keen aims to provide the world’s online businesses with ready access to the sort of detailed data so diligently gathered by Brahe, giving them the information they need to make the big leap forward — to, as Spraetz puts it, “turn them into Keplers.”

Check out how KeenIO is Wired’s Next Big Thing.
