Why StartupSpider?

We believe marrying ”innovation spirit & startups” with ”transparency” will revolutionize the startup world

The ecosystem of the "startup & innovation"-sector includes a large mix of different players

  • startups, founders, projects and teams, creating something new
  • investors and innovation researcher, looking for the next interesting thing 
  • innovation interested people or potential customers helping startups / innovations to develop e.g. by providing feedback
  • service provider and other important involved players like universities, government, startup hubs etc. providing support in many different ways

everyone is needed

Most providers developing products, which serve one or two of these user groups. They focus on having the most powerful or most sophisticated product or service for one user group.
This is one view and many of them are doing a great job. However, we follow a slightly different approach. We believe it is like with a delicious meal, the mix and the diversity of the ingredients makes the difference and leads to the great experience. 

the place for everyone

It's like with a holiday resort. Some people chose the place because they like the weather, others because of the food, some because of the activities and some simply live & work in that city. The reasons may be different why they are there, but they will meet each other at the bar, on the street or in a bookstore. Because of this, we focus on "the individual needs" to bring them to the same place, where they can meet. 

The net, which connects everyone with each other

With StartupSpider we have built a platform, which allows to marry the different needs of the various user groups with each other. By doing so it continuously develops like a net between each user group, connecting everyone.

Most of the different user groups have a main need either in community (interacting, getting feedback, meet e.g. investors) or in data (overview of startups & innovation, reports, analytics). To get more information about the features which are already available or will be available in near future please take a look at the service description 

How does StartupSpider work?

Data and information

By providing community functionalities (e.g. a startup is looking for beta-tester) information about the progress of a company or project becomes more transparent. Such kind of information are usually not available for investors or innovation researchers. Usually they are only contacted, when the startup / innovation project is ready for either an investment or for customers.
We monitor the startup / project from the start and along the whole lifecycle. We enrich the data points with additional information, thanks to many connected data sources (including funding platforms, company registers etc.) and the information analysed by our research team (which works together with universities). This enables creating a huge and unique data universe. 


In return the community benefits from the advantages, which become available due to the data universe (e.g. intelligent matching prerequisites data intelligence).
The foundation of the community functionality is similar to any other social media platform: a profile gets created (as a user, as a startup or as a project) and you start to communicate (publishing information, chat etc.).
Step by step we will be adding functionalities, which allow and enable effective interaction and cooperation - this will release a completely new level of community interaction.
