通过BetaList分析近年的创业项目分类风向标

初创公司清单列表网BetaList是一个收集和整理最新的初创公司信息的站点,盘点那些最新推出的科技研发产品,对于目前投资的热潮来说最受关注的就是这些初创公司,他们往往有很好的创意产品,只不过是资金不足,关注初创公司也就是在关注未来科技的发展趋势。

BetaList首页为用户展示了四个 Trending Startups 热门产品项目以及按时间顺序展示每天的新产品,网站目前仅支持 Twitter 账号登陆。BetaList 在产品展示页面中,允许用户收藏、评论回复产品的建议疑问。由于登陆 BetaList 网站的时候已经通过 Twitter 账号登录,所以我们在查看产品的贡献者的时候,可看到对应公开的 Twitter 社交链接。

 

以上是通过0-9A-Z排序的,从统计学理解,应该至少可以通过几个维度进行一定的分析:

  • 总量统计(从大到小、从小到大)
  • 关联分类(行业关联性分析)
  • 趋势变化(按月、年等)

下面我们作一个总量统计分析:

通过以上初步分析,可以基本判断出一些结论来:

  • 企业服务是近年的创业风口
  • SaaS服务成为软件服务趋势
  • 移动端(Mobile/APPs)创业占比高
  • 工具栏应用(Web Tools/Developer Tools)也是初创企业喜欢选择的方向
  • 营销和媒体始终在创新中发展(Marketing/Media)
