Start-ups in Germany

When it comes to the best start-ups in Germany, you won’t be disappointed! The world of technology and IT recruitment in Germany is a buzzing space. This is definitely down to some exciting companies calling Germany home.

In particular, the start-up scene has grown massively. Many start-ups that were born in German universities and research institutes have received funding through the federal government’s EXIST program. This drive for innovation has certainly ignited the start-up world in Germany.

It got us thinking…what are the top start-ups in Germany right now? Here are a few that have really caught our attention!

Our favourite start-ups in Germany

With start-ups, it always starts with the message and the mission. This is what catches the eyes of investors and future customers or users. Furthermore, it’s about offering something never seen before. That can be quite tricky in a world of evolving technology. Nevertheless, here are a few start-ups in Germany we are watching!


Understanding your carbon footprint is important. In world news, climate change remains one of the biggest topic of the times. This eco-focused start-up was founded in 2019 and is currently based in Berlin. It allows users and businesses to understand their impact on the environment, offering ways to reduce it.
