EMERGE 100 Report
is a long list of the emerging startups in the New East region. Since our foundation four years ago, we have been focusing on the New East (CEE, CIS — in general, 20+ countries), which we consider a new technological hub.
Selecting the startups, we used the recommendations of our ecosystem partners in the New East. Information about each company was taken from the questionnaire that the team member has filled out. The main criteria for including a startup into the EMERGE 100 Report were age no longer than 3 years, investments no more than $3 million, MVP, traction, team’s challenges, and success during 2020, the positive impact on society.
The application form included 30+ points about the project and the team: general information, most important business metrics and details, positive impact on society (contribution to the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals), the main problem that founders face when developing the project, and some personal questions.
