The data you need to design your business model, win investors, and win in the market.


Identify your competitors.

Has someone already implemented your idea? Who else is playing in the space? We find them all. With years of market research experience, we have the tools and insights to find your top competitors -- from tiny niche startups to industry titans. We’ll give you the top 5 we think pose the biggest threat to your idea.

Get insights into their user traction.

What does their user base look like? How are they acquiring new customers? You’ll want some insight into how they monetize their users. Do they offer community support/client success? What’s your opportunity to do it better?

Learn how much funding they've raised.

How far along are your competitors? Bootstrapping? Fund raising? Seed stage? Series A? You’ll want to know what you’re up against… We’ll give you an idea of where they are now and what their scaling potential looks like.

Mike Kelly

Mike is one of the co-founders of Startup Competitors. Startup Competitors builds on Mike's year's of experience hearing founders pitch - and then within two minutes of Google searching finding two or three competitors that the founder has never heard of. It's very frustrating.  Mike is one of the founders of DeveloperTown, and an owner and advisor in DeveloperTown Ventures. He's the founder of Tenant Tracker - a CRE Tech startup. He's a co-founder of Waterly - a startup focused on changing the way small municipalities report water usage to the EPA. And he's gearing up to help launch FullStack PEO.

Steve Jones

Steve is one of the co-founders of Startup Competitors. For him, Startup Competitors is a chance to help early stage founders with a foundational component of their business planning process. Competitor research is crucial to go-to-market strategy, financial analysis, and understanding product-market-fit. In addition, it gives him a great excuse to reach out to and pick the brains of some of the best minds in the venture world. Steve is a past DeveloperTown contributor, and has spent the last few years honing his digital marketing and research skills at one of the most trusted brands in home services. 

I wanted to thank you for some great work! We just got our market research report and we are really happy with the product. Some great finds in there, and the detail in the data is awesome.
