The unique dataset comes from a survey of 1,970 one-pagers—one page descriptions outlining the mission statement and business plans of startups usually used when approaching potential investors. All of the one-pagers were created using an online service developed by Israel-based startup VCforU.Com Ltd., helping startups generate one-pagers by filling out an online questionnaire.
According to the data aggregated by VCforU, 21% of all companies sampled, a total of 416 startups, picked health and wellness as their industries of choice, including startups operating in the domains of mobile health, biotech, and pharma-related tech. 12% of all startups sampled picked ecommerce as their industry, followed by 7% that picked entertainment as their main domain, 5.7% in agricultural tech and food tech, and 5% in travel and tourism.
One-pagers analyzed were generated by companies that registered with VCforU in 2017 and have completed the online process in full. From the 1,970 companies sampled, around 41% are based in Israel and over 21% in the U.S.
Founded in 2016 and based in Haifa, a port city in the northern district of Israel, VcforU has over 7,000 startups coming from 117 countries registered with the service, 73% of which are early stage seed or round A startups.
