What is Startup Sourcing / Scouting?

The global startup ecosystem is comprised of over 20 million companies. 1.3 million new startups are founded every year, receiving over 400 billion euro in Venture Capital. Startup sourcing is the competency to systematically identify the best startup solutions for your challenges. Startup scouting on the other hand helps you to understand a market or field of interest and potential opportunities within.
