Why Ovogo?

The world is rapidly changing, bringing new complexities to decision-making, specifically deciding where to live, work, settle down, and raise a family.

Safety has become a paramount concern, especially in the United States, where violent crime rates have been rising in many cities. Yet access to hyper-localized crime data is lacking, leaving people uncertain about the security of different areas.

In the modern economy, job stability is no longer a guarantee. As careers beckon people to relocate more frequently, understanding how different locations impact earning potential is crucial. Salaries, taxes, and costs of living vary drastically between regions. Without granular data comparing these financial factors, maximizing net income gets complicated.

Furthermore, inflation has squeezed household budgets, amplifying the need to pinpoint regions with lower living costs. Yet existing online resources tend to provide only broad-brushed cost estimates, falling short of the tailored insights people require.

Climate change also looms large, particularly for those making long-term investments like buying property. With projections of rising sea levels, increased wildfire risk, and other environmental impacts, choosing where to put down roots requires weighing an area's climate resilience. However, accessing digestible, location-specific climate data to inform such decisions remains challenging.

Social tensions also fray community fabrics, making cultural fit a vital consideration. People seek areas aligned with their values and lifestyles; they desire to feel welcomed and build a sense of belonging. Yet, common data often relates to basic demographic stats, failing to tell complete and accurate life stories as it is in various communities.

Relocation decisions arise repeatedly during life's major transitions—beginning careers, changing jobs, marrying, having children, and retiring. While ample travel advice exists about visiting destinations, in-depth information about day-to-day life in thousands of areas remains scarce. The inability to holistically vet a wide array of options compounds the difficulty.
