Mapping the Zurich startup ecosystem – new open-access startup database
Today, Zurich becomes the first Swiss city to join the pan-European network of startup ecosystems powered by Dealroom. Initiated by Verve Ventures, and supported by AWS Activate, Swiss Post Ventures and Business Monitor, the new dedicated startup database catalogues 1,051 startups, 119 VC investors and 127 corporates in Switzerland’s largest city.
The Zurich startup database joins over 20 other European tech startup ecosystem solutions, including the UK, France, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Macro trends and fine-grain data
Examples of data you can find on the platform:
- Investment by industry heatmap, showing fintech as a particular strength
- Every funding round, including 73 closed by Zurich startups in 2020
- Who’s hiring – see the startups with the most live job openings in the city
The database offers investment-grade company level data on all startups, scaleups and corporates in the city.
A practical tool
As well as tracking every startup, the database has also been built with founders and investors in mind.
The startup-investor Matching Tool uses company level data an investment patterns to identify likely good matches for founders seeking their next funding round, or investors looking for dealflow.
The platform also provides global visibility to local startups, with a user base including top startup talent and every major VC.
