1. Celonis SE (Munich): process analysis software
Process mining is the business model of Celonis. Processes often contain hidden knowledge about workflows and process design. Celonis wants to bring this know-how to light. It is not for nothing that the term “mining” comes from mining. For this purpose, Celonis has developed a software that captures and digitally maps real business processes in order to analyze them. The software can be used in a wide variety of areas. Celonis was founded in 2011 and today has a second headquarters in New York, employs 750 people and generates annual sales of over 100 million US dollars.
2. Personio GmbH (Munich): HR software
Personnel management – newly also known as human resources (HR) management – is a costly but important area of business.
With digitization, many processes in the HR area can be made leaner and more efficient. The Munich-based startup Personio, founded in 2015, offers a comprehensive software solution for this purpose. It is intended for small and medium-sized companies that do not have their own resources for digitization. Personio now has 600 employees. Over 3,000 companies in 80 countries around the globe are already using the software, and the potential is far from exhausted.
3. Adjust GmbH (Berlin): Mobile Measurement, Fraud Prevention Software
Since 2012, the Berlin-based company Adjust GmbH has been developing solutions for analyzing app usage behavior – a rather “behind the scenes” business model, but one that has been very successful. Adjust software can already be found in more than 30,000 apps. In addition to marketing analysis, the startup now also offers software against digital advertising fraud and for fraud prevention. Adjust is growing rapidly – through organic growth and company acquisitions. There are now already 15 Adjust offices – including in New York, Paris and Moscow. The company has more than 350 employees.
