Why does Startup Directory focus on research spinouts?

Research spinouts typically have a strong research and intellectual property foundation, and are an attractive source of investment and acquisition. Furthermore, quality data on research spinouts is hard to find — until we launched Startup. Directory!

How do you find the startups in your database?

Where do you get the data from? We check each of the included institutions on an ongoing basis, and monitor a wide range of publications to spot new startup announcements. We have a team of analysts conducting primary research and we do not rely on crowd-sourced databases or funding-submission databases.

How do you differ from free startup listings?

We have analysts continuously monitoring sources and updating records so our data is much more accurate than you’ll find in free databases. In checking those databases, we have found that many of our startups are not listed, and quite a few of the startups that are listed in the free databases are actually inactive or closed. Our database also contains more information than the free databases.
