Marketplace and Active Lifestyle have catapulted themselves into the TOP 10 startup topics. The classic topics AI, analytics  and IoT take a slight hit. For April we predict a larger proportion of hardware startups as the Asian conference seasons begins.

Germany dominates in B2C, but Austria fights back with multiplicative effects in B2B2C

This month we took a look at the distribution of market segments for two major German speaking markets. We can clearly see a much larger focus on consumer products and services in the larger of the two, Germany. This can probably be explained by the vastly greater size in viable market which is still easier for German startups to access than Austrian despite a shared language. The stronger focus on B2B2C in Austria speaks to this. This reaction looks to counteract the market entry difficulties and to utilize the multiplicative effects of this collaborative partnership model to ease entry.
