The Hundert Startups of Germany
After presenting the 100 most promising startups of our hometown Berlin last year, in the new 11th issue we decided to broaden our horizons and take a look at the flourishing startup scene in Germany.
The 100 most innovative Startups of Germany were chosen by an amazing panel of judges, consisting of experts from various industries regarding the startup scene. Our six photographers traveled across Germany to picture the chosen startups in their natural environment.
The Top 100 Startups of Germany
The variety of companies presented in The Hundert Startups of Germany 2018 represents the complexity of Germany as a startup hub: a total of 40 different sectors are depicting what Germany has to offer.
The result: an insightful and beautifully made coffee table book with photographs of the highest level. Get to know the 100 most innovative startups of the year in Germany:
We asked our judges about their opinions of the German startup scene and this is what they told us
“It is really inspiring to see how many exciting and innovative startups we now have in Germany. But we can’t stop here: we need to make sure that we have enough diversity amongst founders, that startups are finding the right talent to keep growing, and that bright young people have all the tools and network support they need to bring their business ideas to life.”
“We need to build game changers in Germany, and I see the biggest potential for that in dynamic startups. The Hundert massively supports the German startup scene by giving the most innovative German Startups a stage.”
“Berlin is the digital capital of Europe, but the journey has just begun. Congratulations to the young founders and pioneers in the digital field: the winners of The Hundert!”
“Startups are now more than just a promise for the future. They turned into essential players in our economy. The Hundert makes entrepreneurship tangible and gives our founders — my heroes of the present — the stage they deserve with courage and passion.”
“The US tech ecosystem is 20-30 years ahead. Europe will miss this opportunity, unless there is sufficient capital provided for digital companies. We appreciate initiatives like those of The Hundert, which help to spotlight the German startup scene.”
“There is now a lively startup scene in Germany – not only in Berlin, but also in Hamburg, Munich, Aachen, Cologne, and many other places. It’s nice that this issue makes 100 of them visible.”
