LinkedIn attracts innovators and startups

LinkedIn is increasingly attracting the attention of professionals in the field of startups, accelerators, startup venture capital and angel investors.

This fact is also confirmed by annual comparison of the membership size. The number of new members almost doubled in most categories, mainly in Europe. Earlier this year, there have been more than 2 million professionals with Innovation or Startup skills on LinkedIn.

More than half of the Startup professionals come from North America (55%). This region is also the leading in the representation of Innovation (50%), R&D (42%) and Venture Capital & Private Equity (40%). However, Innovation Management (60%) and Innovation Development (43%) are the domains of European professionals.


A pleasant finding is the presence of a majority of the 37 companies from The Billion-Dollar Startup Club (the best startups that are valued at $1 billion or more by venture-capital firms) on LinkedIn. Nine of ten startups (90%) have a LinkedIn company page – more precisely, all American and European startups, and the half of the Chinese.
