dataSpring has a proud history that starts in 1999 with the founding of Voyage Group (VG). VG quickly grew to become a leading internet company in Japan. In 2009, it funded a subsidiary research company named Research Panel Asia (RPA). RPA, known for high-quality proprietary Asian panels and great service, was acquired in 2015 by Marketing Applications Inc. (MApps), a leading Tokyo-based research technology company. The resulting company is known globally as dataSpring.
