The 300* Startups Studios Taking on the World

*Not really 300, but close

‘Studios, what is your profession?’

Since their invention around 20 years ago and the extraordinary success of Rocket Internet in Berlin and Betaworks in New York, the startup studio model has spread far and wide. However the most explosive growth of the model has occurred over the last 4 years and it has been particularly virulent in Europe. In fact Europe boasts about half of all Startup Studios on the planet.

This is as near to being comprehensive as possible and will be updated as new ones are found (if you are aware of any that I missed, please comment and I’ll be sure to add it to the list).

Map — Just look at how many startup studios there are!

How to use this list:

As you can see, this list is long and you will benefit greatly from the deft use of control-f. The list of countries are alphabetized except for European countries while fall under ‘Europe.’ This is not a political statement, there are just to many of them!
