About us


We want to make Germany a leading startup nation.

More than 35,000 companies and organizations are now part of the German startup ecosystem. Startbase is the German platform that centrally maps the startup ecosystem and provides a comprehensive overview startup scene.

Startbase improves the availability of information and promotes networking among ecosystem participants. This makes German startups more visible nationally and internationally, facilitates access to innovations for investors and SMEs, and signals to society and politics the relevance of the startup ecosystem for the future economic strength of the Federal Republic.
