European Startup Monitor:

The German Startups Association (GSA) introduced the first European Startup Monitor (ESM) in Brussels and Berlin. The comparable data of the ESM was evaluated in cooperation with startup-representatives of 15 European Union (EU) Member States and Israel. More than 2,300 Startups were surveyed, representing over 31,000 employees, to acquire comparable data for the European startup ecosystem. The next data collection will start in the summer and will be anonymous. All national startup representatives are encouraged to contact us for partnership in their ecosystem. The European Startup Montior gives transparency to European startups, identifies country-specific and European-wide challenges, and underscores the growing influence of these young enterprises to the European economy with valid data.
