An AI driven coaching support tool managing a complex startup environment.

We support accelerator programs, coaches and founders with a holistic coaching tool to identify strengths and weaknesses of their startups.


Problem – Analyzing your Startup to enable a holistic coaching:

Sustainable startups are key actors for future innovations and sustainable market transformations. To leverage their success, coaching is one of the most relevant key success factors. As each startup is a unique system embedded in a highly dynamic context, success or failure depend on complex internal and external factors. To understand the dependencies and relationships of such factors, coaches and accelerator programs as well as founders themselves are in need of a scientific evaluation tool that is able to analyze weaknesses and strengths of such startups embedded in their ecosystem context.


Application – Startup and context analysis by means of graph database modeling:

Expedition startup offers a coaching tool that visualizes your startup and its relational factors embedded in its ecosystem by asking you to fill-in a short survey of your status-quo. A peer group comparison is offered to your coaches and mentors.


Solution – Development of a holistic evaluation tool for sustainable startups and accelerator programs to manage startup ecosystems

Every startup is uniquely structured and dependent on external as well as internal factors that are holicitally embedded in a highly dynamic context. Our AI driven coaching tool visualizes and understands startups’ relational dependencies and is able to identify its weak spots and strengths. As a basis for a successful coaching, we evaluate the startups’ status-quo.

Our Solution

Expedition Startup makes use of graph database modeling to capture and visualize a startup’s status-quo in the ecosystem in which it is embedded in. Via graph datebase modeling we are able to understand interdependencies and relational factors as well as a peer-group comparison.

  • We identify success factors and weak points as a guidance for coaching lessons.
  • For the purpose of a peer group comparison, we build startup clusters via context-mining to understand success factors in a relative manner.
