Our Mission

Our global startup ecosystem map has tens of thousands of registered startups, coworking spaces, and accelerators creating a robust sample of innovation and business verticals worldwide. Our annual reports and ranking tables are used by hundreds of thousands of readers to inform decisions on relocation, investment and research.

StartupBlink uncovers the momentum of startup ecosystems and accelerates their growth.

As the world’s leading policy advising think tank on startup ecosystem growth, StartupBlink gives all stakeholders in the global startup ecosystem accurate information to help inform location-based decisions. Through our assets and advisory consulting, we enable Ecosystem developers to map, brand and grow their ecosystem.

Startup Ecosystem Research

Once a year, we release the world’s most comprehensive Global Startup Ecosystem Report, ranking the Startup Ecosystems of over 1,000 cities and 100 countries. Our reports are read by hundreds of thousands of decision-makers around the world and receive hundreds of mentions in the global and national press. Our goal is to provide free quality information for startup founders so they can make intelligent decisions about relocation and the right place to build their startup.

In collaboration with HIEx by UNAIDS, we have also developed the Coronavirus Innovation Map. A global directory with hundreds of innovations and solutions that help people cope and adapt to life amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and to connect innovators.
