About the methodology:

The evaluation is based on 16,000 German companies that, due to their technology-savvy and scalable business model, fall into the startup grid and are younger than 20 years. Glassdollar measured growth based on size and the buzz around the company.

The most important factor is the new hires. In addition, the website views and the number of followers in social media are included in the index value. However, sales and profit are not taken into account. The ranking favors small startups because it is based on relative changes that small teams usually achieve faster than startups with hundreds of employees.

The underlying data comes from the industry services Dealroom and Crunchbase, the commercial register, LinkedIn and the respective company website.
