Software-Supported Startup Scouting

Identify, evaluate, discuss and monitor your startup ecosystem with ITONICS Startup Radar

Startups have generated a lot of noise lately. All industries should care about these new startups because in one way or another, they will inevitably affect the way that we all do business. Here are three reasons why you should monitor your startup ecosystem:

#1: Be prepared

Startup monitoring drives your competitive advantage by identifying cutting-edge startups and technologies at the forefront of digitalization and disruption. Who or what could disrupt your business? Which innovative technologies are at their tipping point and ready to deliver real business value? Knowing the answers to these questions helps you to adjust your strategy and be prepared for the future.

#2: Partnership and Investment Opportunities

Though many startups have the potential to disrupt your industry by delivering a completely new value to your customers or serving customer needs in a different way, there are more opportunities for partnering with and investing in startups. By collaborating with these new businesses, you can improve your business while taking advantage of access to the innovative tools, competencies and workarounds created by startups.

#3: Stimulate your own Innovations

Oftentimes, startups take up a customer-centric perspective. Understanding why certain startups are successful and how they are serving their customers can greatly stimulate your own innovation process. Other newcomers experiment with new technologies, e.g. artificial intelligence, robots or cryptocurrencies, and come up with completely new ways of delivering business value. Understanding these insights can add magic to your own innovation activities.
