Discover all the features of Motherbase

Motherbase was built from the ground up to help our clients carry-out their open-innovation projects. Initially, Motherbase was a collection of startup databases we had assembled for our consulting projects. Three years later, thanks to the work of our dedicated research and development teams, Motherbase is a fully-fledged, feature-rich open-innovation platform.

Motherbase deciphers the innovation ecosystems of over 1.000 large organizations : understand how a corporate company interacts with startups, who are these startups, which sectors and technologies they represent, etc…

Search results can be displayed on a map in order to visualize trends across regions, countries and continents. Motherbase is the only platform place where can instantly visualize how your ecosystem is spread around the world !

Motherbase users can export data from the platform according to their needs:

  • Preformatted csv files to input into third party data visualization tools
  • Flat Excel exports for reporting and presentation purposes
  • JSON exports for further data manipulation

Do you need to keep a close eye on a specific sector? When new companies appear working on a specific technology? Monthly fundraiser recaps? With Motherbase, you can decide what information is important to you and how you want to receive it.

Motherbase has identified, analysed and qualified over 60.000 entities. Each entity has its dedicated page, including basic information, social networks, activity tracking, fundraising, similar companies and more !

Motherbase features the fastest startup search engine on the market today. Our AI has qualified every startup in our database (sector, technology, entity type, …); our search engine relies on these to bring you exactly the results you are looking for, everytime.

Motherbase’s data can be used to generate social graphs to represent ecosystems in minutes : How do startups interact with corporates in a given field ? How are startups between different business sectors in a particular area? What are the communication trends of startups working in AI? Mapping out these ecosystems is essential to get a clear view of them and answer these questions.

Each startup page includes fundraising data (when available) thanks to our partnership with Crunchbase. This gives our users further insights into companies’ progress, with information about funds raised, investors, investment stages, etc…
