How does Startup Scout work?


Kickoff meeting

First, describe your desired search field – industry, geographical area, size, type, etc. Next, prepare  your application form or use our cutting edge Application Form and let us know what sort of startups would you like to address with it.


Finding startups

We’ve got a system through which we’re able to process millions of websites. We enrich our results with over a thousand more startup sources such as company databases, social networks and other. All this broadens our database and makes sure we don’t need to rely on any other data provider.


Validating startups

Time is precious, so we use machine learning technologies to do the scouting, then a team of reliable analysts polish the results so only the relevant startups are contacted.



Just like we only look up what's relevant for you, we also personalise messages send to startups. The conversion rate from an email to a finalised application to your program is around 10 %.


Delivery of startups

Out of 100 startup leads that we contact, 8-15 will submit the application form. How many more startups could apply to your program in the next 4 weeks?
