The tech ecosystem in Europe is awesome but there is no open database yet. How odd in our sharing economy… We want to fix this.
TechShaker is bound to become the first open database for the tech ecosystem in Europe and Beyond. It’s free, fast and simple.
The Alpha version was launched on the 18th of june.
We’re currently finalizing the development of our API so everybody can contribute and use the collected data. as we’re moving forward to build THE open source database within our great tech ecosystem, we are coping with two main challenges 1) collect data 2) bring value to the community.
Regarding the first part, we know it’s not easy to make you all participate at the beginning because you don’t know us and we don’t bring enough value for the moment. Therefore we’re currently adding the data by ourselves, about 50 entries every single day… Maybe more soon! We’ll succeed all together when TechShaker will be the natural next step after setting up your company’s twitter account and posting your first blog post. Yes, it will take some time.
Regarding the second aspect, there are several players in the game:
Startups, incubators, accelerators, investors… are basically audience. Media want audience, Audience wants alerts and news. Let’s get together then! How?
1) THE BASIC SOLUTION - Automation Process. Perfect to detect news about startups which are in the database, very bad and noneffective otherwise. It does not contribute to create a sustainable ecosystem neither…
2) THE RIGHT SOLUTION - Through an API to connect the media to TechShaker within seconds (that’s what we’re currently developing for wordpress through a simple yet powerful widget). Why media would use the API? Because we provide them within seconds with more visibility, backlinks and free to use and keep data.
And yes, it will work with sectors. “Please send me alerts whenever a company or a news regarding e-commerce pops up”
Your feedbacks are welcome.
Thanks for the support of the early adopters.
