Startup Weekends: Only 7% are still active (Analysis Jan 2010)

Unfortunately there is still no central overview for all past Startup Weekends which offers project reviews or gives answers about their further activities. And although many of the events are hosted at startupweekend.org, the aggregation of the company activities is still very incomplete: Past Companies.

So I have done again an own research and updated our Startup Weekend List (from Oct 2008 and April 2009) for the third time and evaluated the actual project progresses.

If a single Startup or a Startup Weekend is missing, give us a hint via email or comment on this post.

Fortunately, there was again a German startup weekend last September. The next German Startup Weekend will be in Berlin in early March (05.03.2010 – 07.03.2010).

Significant changes in the last 9 months (compared to April 2009)

  • 96 new Companies were launched
  • The startups are increasingly using Twitter as initial channel of communication, instead of blogs
  • Almost all Startup Weekends were held in the U.S., in Germany two new startups have been launched
  • Up to 16 new startups have been launched at one weekend (!)
  • 16 Startups are currently active (Apr 09: 15)
  • 7% of the startups are „active“ (Apr 09: 12%)
  • 34% are „offline“ (Apr 09: 30%)
  • 58% of the projects are „idle“ (Apr 09: 57%) / no visible development in the past few months
