Germany is known in the world for having an environment that is highly conducive for businesses. This city is beautiful as it takes care of both its giant multi-national companies as well as its nascent startups. Don’t we all love how the German’s work. They are diligent, focused, dedicated, efficient and highly committed towards meeting deadlines. Thus it does not come as a surprise when this city has some really successful startups to look up to.
But how do you keep track of all these successful German startups? Well do not worry there is a new app called Startuprad.io that will keep you updated on all such information. This app was conceptualized and co-founded by Alysssa McDonald-Baertl, Kirill Bauer and Jörn Menninger. They are a bunch of entrepreneurs, consultants and freelancers that enjoy building and innovating new and interesting ideas.
Know Startuprad.io Better!
This web app is aiming at bringing startup news from Germany in English (www.startuprad.io) and German (www.startupradio.de) to the world. It is a podcast that covers events in Germany, does in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs and provides regular news updates from the German and European startup scene.
The team through Startuprad.io offers listeners an insight into the German startup scene all in 30 minutes once a month. Users also have an option to always learn more.
What Inspired It All?
“Kirill and I first wanted to provide a regular news update from Germany in German with Startupradio.de. By demand and requests from listeners, supporters and fans it grew. First doing interviews with entrepreneurs, followed by attending events. Finally we started doing more and more stuff in English. So we recently launched the English only channel startuprad.io, for which Alyssa joined us”, says Joern.
On Challenges Faced & Competitors
Like most startups, getting the word out there about the app was the team’s biggest challenge. Also, another hurdle faced by them was their time restraints as they were still in their usually full time jobs. Nevertheless one positive is that the idea is so unique that they virtually have no direct competitors in the market.
On Expansion Plans, Target Audience & More
The team is on a quest to extend their coverage and continue to bring high quality interviews to their users. Presently, Startuprad.io is mainly targeted towards an audience that includes policy makers, investors and people thinking about starting their own company.
“We plan on monetizing by sponsoring of episodes and commercials. We are also open to pay for content”, adds the team.
To perfectly sum it up, this app lets you know all the details about which startup is trending and creating waves in Germany and much more.
