We recently had the pleasure to be one of the 150 or so startups who presented themselves at the Startupnight in Berlin. More precisely: In the atrium of Microsoft Unter den Linden. To cut a long story short: It was a successful and exhausting event for networking start-ups with business and students!
We were one of the startups in Data Analytics and showed besides our Software-as-a-Service Implisense Pro also the demo of a Startup Tracker, which we created especially for the event.
For many interested parties, the startup scene is confusing and highly dynamic. And this impression is confirmed by the fact that the changes in the management and finances of 1,100 start-ups from Germany have taken place over the last 10 years.
The Startup Tracker visualizes the foundation and changes of approx. 1,100 startups, which we track monthly with a self-developed counting method. The graph shows the federal states first of all and then the district courts. There, the startups considered are set up and changes are reported. In all announcements of the startups, managing directors or authorised signatories are named with their respective year of birth. Over time, it has become apparent that many foundations have been set up, especially at the district courts of Berlin (Charlottenburg), Hamburg and Munich. The list of age groups on the left-hand side of the picture shows that managing directors and authorised signatories come mainly from the decades 1960-1980 – with a few exceptions, such as 1985.
Our conclusion of the event: A growing event, not without reason, which helps the contact between start-ups, the economy and last but not least the many students looking for a job. We will be there again next year when we are asked.
