The Austrian entrepreneur, startup mentor and podcaster Florian Kandler just published an interesting set of Startup Reports, which features the funding successes of the past year from eight different European countries. These are Austria, Portugal, the Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Ireland, Denmark and Norway. During the preparation process for the report, Florian did hundreds of Q&A sessions with founders from all over Europe.

The startup reports were published just a few weeks ago and have the goal to celebrate the past year. The reports shine a light on the startups, their founders and make their successes visible to the local and European startup community. In addition, the reports are meant to be an inspiration to aspiring founders, who can learn from the insights the founders share in the county specific reports. An overview regarding the startup reports can be found here.
