What is a Wavestone Startup Radar?

Shake’Up, our tailor-made startup accelerator, aims to provide significant added value to our clients through our deep understanding of the startup ecosystem and emerging trends. It is within this framework that our teams have developed Wavestone Startup Radars, genuine differentiators that offer market insights through sectoral or thematic lenses.

Our Radars serve two primary purposes:

  • Decrypting the market and identifying new trends
  • Cataloging the promising startups of tomorrow

The Wavestone Startup Radars do not aim for absolute comprehensiveness. Our consultants follow a precise methodology to select the startups included in them. As an independent consulting firm, our radars have no commercial scope and primarily aim to provide a qualified overview of the market at a specific moment.

The radar takes the form of a visual representation gathering all identified players in the field under sub-categories. Given the volatility of the current economic landscape, the radars are updated annually and inherently involve constant technological monitoring. Currently, we have over 5,000 startups cataloged and around twenty active radars.

Our Wavestone Radar Methodology

The Wavestone Radars follow a tailored methodology, enabling our teams to conduct a consistent analysis of the startup market, regardless of their industry. The radars are mostly updated annually, allowing our clients to observe the evolution of the ecosystems that interest them.

The launch of a Shake’Up Radar is made in congruence with current events, and with the sectors of activity or use cases at the heart of our customers’ concerns.

To identify the most relevant startups, we rely on published articles, encounters during market events, or project calls.

The radar is made up of startups offering distinctly innovative solutions in response to current challenges and trends. Structuring and analyses are always carried out according to defined criteria, to ensure consistent quality. Please note that sourcing methods vary according to the radars. For further details, please refer to the methodology highlighted in each of our publications.

The radar combines the information gathered during the research phase. Each radar undergoes a formal review by Wavestone experts.

It is mandatory for teams in charge of designing radars to exchange with each startup before including them in the analysis. The goal is to ensure that the information about the startup (sector, sales, fundraising, etc.) is accurate. This first-hand contact is invaluable, as it also helps to detect trends identified by startups in their ecosystem.
