How would you use Motherbase?

 

Are you trying to keep an eye on your ecosystem?  Do you need to know how startups related to a given technology are doing? Are you trying to figure out who your competitors are talking with?

Use Case #1: Sourcing Startups for Cartes Bancaires (CB)

To help the LAB by CB’s team source startups for their yearly programmes, U Change consultants use Motherbase to identify and analyse promising companies. Thanks to the platform’s unparalleled startup search engine and unique data available for each entity, the team is able to rapidly sift through hundreds of startups to focus on the candidates likely to make a real impact. This year, the three startups chosen on the “Voice Commerce” challenge built an independent food delivery assistant from the ground up in under a month! All the startups were identified with Motherbase.

Use Case #2: Mapping the Water ecosystem

In the context of a project for a major French public institution, Motherbase was used to identify and map out every stake holder involved in water processing and distribution in France.

Initially, Motherbase contained very few companies concerned with this topic. Working with our client’s team, we identified the 40 most important “catalysts”, or the “nodes” of this ecosystem: large corporate companies, incubators, accelerators, business clusters, public institutions, etc… We fed these 40 catalysts into Motherbase, and two weeks later, our algorithms had identified 1800 organisations (startups, small businesses, not-for-profits, etc…) connected to the original 40.

We were able to map out these organizations on a social graph, to see which ones were connected to the most catalysts, which ones were isolated, what were the key technologies, etc… This analysis gave our client  the understanding they lacked of their eco-system, and from there they were able to draw up a clear roadmap for the second phase of the project.
