CB Insights: Successful Business Model Trends

CB Insights: Successful Business Model Trends

“As the Covid-19 pandemic has charted its unprecedented path around the world, it’s carried with it the question: What will Covid-19’s legacy be? From healthcare to education to entertainment to manufacturing, technology innovators are stepping forward to help answer that question”, so the latest research “25 Industries & Tech Shaping The Post-Covid World” by CB Insights.

Leading analysts predict a $350B market valuation for the ed tech industry by 2025 even prior to the pandemic. More and more digital tools are also being used in education. IDEASCANNER benefits from this. For example, our digital tool is part of the certification program for startup advisors at colleges and universities at Denkfabrik Hochschulen & Entrepreneurship e.V. Entrepreneurship professors also use it in lectures to quickly evaluate business ideas and show how the current business model can be improved in a peer-to-peer approach.

But what are the implications of these 25 industry & technology trends for the next generation of family businesses? How do they need to position themselves to be future ready? Let our IDEASCANNER experts put your current business model to the test and contact us!

Download Report: The Missing Entrepreneurs 2021

Melanie Stütz from IDEASCANNER was at the launch event for the latest report of “The Missing Entrepreneurs 2021” organized by the OECD, European Commission and Global Entrepreneurship Network. See how “missing entrepreneurs” are costing economies ideas, innovation and jobs and watch the video here.

Together we can close the gap of missing entrepreneurs. With IDEASCANNER, we create entrepreneurs. We democratize the knowledge of successful venture capitals (VCs) by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI). With our digital tool, we empower entrepreneurs to evaluate and improve ideas within minutes. We help governments close the skill gap in entrepreneurship.

Because: “Not everyone has an equal opportunity to transform their ideas into a business. There could be an additional 9 million people starting and managing new business in the European Union (EU) – and 35 million across OECD countries – if everyone was as active in business creation as core age men (30-49 years old). This would be 50% more people engaged in early-stage entrepreneurship in the EU and 40% more in OECD countries. About three-quarters of these “missing” entrepreneurs are women, half are over 50 years old and one-in-eight are under 30 years old.”, so the latest report. Download it now here for free.
