Market Saturation

Market Saturation is a rating that describes how mature a particular Opportunity is in a given country. It is not the easiest to measure given so many factors involved. We have come up with five (5) general categories and their corresponding descriptions:

0 (Nonexistent) - There are no known players currently tackling this Mobile Opportunity. The market is wide open for any company to step in.

1 (Infancy) - One or more players are currently tackling this Mobile Opportunity in the local market, but it is still at its infancy. A great majority (95%+) of the target market is not aware of the solution, hence it is still an open market that can accommodate more players.

2 (Semi-Mature) - One or more players are currently competing in this Opportunity, and it is on its way to become a mature market. A quarter (25%+) of the target market are active customers of the participating companies. There is some difficulty for new players to be able to join the fray, but it is still possible.

3 (Mature) - One or more players are currently competing in this Opportunity, and it is definitely a mature market. Roughly 75% of the target market are active customers of the companies competing in this opportunity. The market is definitely resistant to the entry of new players.

4 (Saturated) - A number of players are aggressively competing in this particular Opportunity, and the market is saturated. Nearly all of the target market are active customers of the participating companies. Without a vastly superior solution and/or substantially large funding, entrepreneurs should steer clear of a heavily saturated market.

Mobile Market Saturation is a rating that describes how mature a particular Mobile Opportunity is in a given country. It is not the easiest to measure given so many factors involved.

0 (Nonexistent) - There are no known players currently tackling this Mobile Opportunity. The market is wide open for any company to step in.

1 (Infancy) - One or more players are currently tackling this Mobile Opportunity in the local market, but it is still at its infancy. A great majority (95%+) of the target market is not aware of the solution, hence it is still an open market that can accommodate more players.

2 (Semi-Mature) - One or more players are currently competing in this Mobile Opportunity, and it is on its way to become a mature market. A quarter (25%+) of the target market are active customers of the participating companies. There is some difficulty for new players to be able to join the fray, but it is still possible

3 (Mature) - A number of players are currently tackling this Mobile Opportunity in the local market which is reasonably mature. Roughly 75% of the target market are active customers of the companies competing in this opportunity. The market is definitely resistant to the entry of new players.

4 (Saturated) - A number of players are aggressively competing in this particular Mobile Opportunity, and the market is saturated.

STARTUP



Startup Name

What is the name of the startup?

Only the startups with the highest valuation or exit amount in your country should be entered on this spreadsheet.

It is not meant to include every startup in the community. The only exception is this rule is if a startup is a rising success (<2 years old, has great potential to become the next big exit).



Web Address

Please provide the official website of this startup.



Country

Which country is the startup mainly based in? If the startup has teams across multiple countries, please select the country with the most employees.



City

Which city is the startup mainly based in? If the startup has teams across multiple cities, please select the city with the most employees.



Year Founded

When was the company founded?



Total Amount Raised ($USD)

What is the total amount of money that the startup has raised to date?



Guesstimate Valuation ($USD)

What is the rough estimation on the valuation of the startup?



This is understandably a tough question, and also a touchy subject as most startups do not like to reveal their valuation.



At World Startup Wiki, we believe that it is important to know the ballpark valuation of the biggest startups in a country in order to get an understanding of how successful local startups can potentially be. This is an important indicator of the overall health & progress of a startup ecosystem, so we ask you to try your best to provide the estimated valuation if the exact valuation is not publicly available.

There are different ways to estimate the valuation of the startup:

1. TOTAL FUNDING TO DATE - For later stage companies, the valuation is typically between 1.x-3X of the total amount raised. For early stage companies, the valuation is typically between 3-10X of the amount raised. This multiplier is largely depended on the country. In mature startup ecosystems like Silicon Valley startups tend to have higher multiplier, in newer startup ecosystems where capital is scarce, investors tend to take higher % of the equity hence a lower multiplier.

2. MARKET/MARKET SHARE/TRACTION - It is also important to consider the market that the startup operates in and how dominant the startup is in this market. One can also use the web traffic information to estimate the numbers of unique users in the startup and use a multiplier to estimate the valuation of the startup.

3. COMMUNITY SOURCES - Many times, the valuation of a startup is known to the people in the startup community. It is okay to cite undisclosed sources for the valuation estimation as long the source can provide a reasonable explanation to justify the estimation (e.g. the company has 10M monthly uniques and roughly $10M revenue a year, hence the $30M valuation).  

In the future, we aim to allow you to enter a range of values so startups can be more comfortable volunteering this piece of data.

For more information, please visit http://faq.worldstartupwiki.org.





Exit Amount or Market Cap ($USD)

If the startup has been acquired and the exact exit amount is known, please enter it.

If the startup has IPO-ed, please enter the current market cap.

Startup Category

There are 2 categories that we are currently tracking:

Notable Success - These are the startups with the highest valuation/market cap/exit amount in the country.

Rising Success - Startups that are less than 2 years old, with very good traction and potential to become the next big success in the country.
