Discover how Ecosystem 180 revolutionizes startup ecosystems by offering advanced, AI-driven tools that surpass traditional methods, enhancing efficiency and innovation
In a world where innovation, entrepreneurship, and startup ecosystems are celebrated as the dynamic powerhouses driving our societies forward, a glaring paradox emerges. These hubs, brimming with technology, innovation, and brilliant minds, are paradoxically mired in outdated operational practices. Why, in 2023, do our ecosystem operations and technology strategies resemble relics from the 1980s? Across the globe, every nation, irrespective of its development status, faces this anachronism.
The disconnect is stark and unsettling. The AI revolution has transformed industries, yet the technological underpinnings of our economic development initiatives remain woefully archaic. This chasm exists at every level, from international financiers to local economic development units. The private sector, while innovative in other realms, lags in ecosystem development, constrained by the necessity of public-private collaboration in establishing foundational infrastructure.
But there's a shift on the horizon. The era of multi million-euro barriers to advanced digital platforms is ending. A new paradigm emerges, one that synergizes the agility and global reach of the SAAS model with the bespoke, lock-in-free freedom of custom-built solutions. This approach isn't just strategically smarter; it's a cost-effective, time-efficient leap into the future of ecosystem development.
In the realm of startup ecosystems, effective data management is not just a necessity – it's a game changer. Existing tools for startup ecosystem development have offered partial solutions, but often at the cost of narrow view, flexibility, integration, and real-time data utilization. These limitations have led to disjointed experiences, data silos, and inefficient resource utilization, hindering the true potential of entrepreneurial ecosystems, and what worries the most, making startup progress slower.

Discover the EU|BIC Playbook: A New Era of Innovation!
Unveil the groundbreaking EU|BIC Innovation Ecosystem Building Playbook and explore Startup Commons' instrumental role in defining the metrics of tomorrow's innovation ecosystems.
We're delighted to introduce the "EU|BIC Innovation Ecosystem Building Playbook" released in June 2023. This playbook is a culmination of collaborative efforts, offering a comprehensive framework for incubators, accelerators, and other innovation actors. And we're proud to announce that Startup Commons has been a key contributor, especially in the domain of ecosystem KPI measurement.
About the playbook
Startup Commons' Spotlight
In the section "Which Ecosystem KPIs to Measure and How" we've emphasized the significance of data interoperability in fostering an integrated approach within the EU|BIC innovation ecosystem. Our insights highlight:
A Word from the CSO of EBN, Bram Pauwels:
"For nearly four decades, EBN and the pan-European EU|BIC community has been guided by the belief in innovation as a powerful force for sustainable economic growth, social progress, and sustainability. United by their common mission and unique in their local contributions, EBN’s quality-certified EU|BICs play a vital role in regional development, job creation, and making a positive societal impact by providing resources, guidance, and connections for startups, SMEs and innovators of all kinds to thrive.
Increasingly, innovation can address systemic crises and create solutions across multiple dimensions including all actors of the innovation helix. Regional innovation ecosystems provide crucial leverage in addressing local challenges by connecting local resources and networks. They support the development of context-specific solutions, ensuring relevance, effectiveness, and local ownership - closely aligned with European strategies and initiatives such as the European Green Deal.
With the EU|BIC Innovation Ecosystem Framework we seek to provide a comprehensive roadmap for realising and strengthening local innovation ecosystems, driving pan-European and global innovation - ultimately to create greater wellbeing for all."
Join the Movement: Explore the Playbook and witness the collective efforts of many, including ours, in shaping the future of innovation in Europe.
Three use cases that contribute to create a single source of truth to help orchestrate your startup ecosystem
1.- As an ecosystem builder, I want to know the most common pathflows of the startups within my territory
Get automated data and insights about how entrepreneurs and startups move through the startup ecosystem: get to know what support organizations and events the entrepreneurs and startups are interacting with and at which velocity entrepreneurs and startups move through the ecosystem. The solution is based on one core application of ecosystemOS, Circle Pass, a modern identity management solution that enables data sharing and portability among individuals and startup ecosystem entities.
2.- As an ecosystem builder, I want to get ecosystem data I can rely on
Find out the foundational component that allows cities, regions and countries to take control of their startup ecosystem data for setting out the terms and conditions for the use of such data for the benefit of everyone. Watch below a short conversation with Khairool Adzelan, Manager, Ecosystem Development and Digital Innovation at SDEC, that summarizes the essence of this use case. Watch the whole conversation here and contribute with your comments in the global conversation.
3.- As an ecosystem builder, I want to coordinate the existing startup supporting services
Run a digital service to periodically understand the relationships and dependencies between the different support organisations and related existing supporting services that contribute to create a better startup journey experience within the ecosystem.
The startup ecosystem mapping app is:
All these use cases will be presented during our "Ecosystem Builders Who Tech" event during Slush 2022. If by chance, you can't attend to our workshop in Helsinki and you are interested in it, reach out to organize it in your facilities. Contact us also to check out our small-scale and short-term pilots for each of the use cases described above.

Road Trip! Digiole is going on a world tour in Fall 2022! Come and learn more about how to harness the power of your ecosystem data to effectively remove barriers for entrepreneurs, startups and other ecosystem actors.
There are many conversations going on around the need for ecosystems to get a 360-degree aggregated view of the innovation entrepreneurship environment with great accuracy but in reality too little with digital is being done to unlock ecosystem data that will eventually help make efficient decisions. Ecosystems are missing many opportunities because the true digital world (data economy, API economy, etc.) and how to implement it in their context is not well understood.
Starting from August 2022, we are going to activate a global tour to inform the cities, regions and countries about what is digitally required and how to gradually start implementing a relevant data infrastructure to harness the power of data to have a more accurate ecosystem analysis and benchmarking, remove barriers to entrepreneurs and startups and eventually improve the business environment.
The plan is to execute 5-10 exclusive sessions from mid August to November 2022. We will lay out:
And during Slush 2022, November 17-18, we will organize a final session to share all the captured learning and finding during the global tour with the global ecosystem building audience attending the Slush event.
It’s through interoperability that innovation entrepreneurship ecosystems will begin to break down their silos, use standards to harmonize its fragmented and incompatible systems and data sharing, and achieve better outcomes.
This digital approach is already being implemented in sectors like healthcare or transportation, but in the context of innovation entrepreneurship ecosystem development, there is no one that would be referred to as a global leader. This is the big opportunity for your ecosystem.
This Global Tour is not a final answer, but the beginning of a global conversation about the way to support the use of data in ecosystems. Put your ecosystem in the future path.
Supporting startup ecosystem development, from entrepreneurship education, to consulting to digital infrastructure for connecting, measuring and international benchmarking.
