Owen Voelker is intrigued by data visualization as a tool in policy design after studying the use of data measurement constructs like the Human Development Index. He founded Advirtuit Inc., a debt relief startup intended to produce an alternative revenue stream for indebted Americans. The business combined his interest in data visualization and real estate.
