Stuttgart houses nearly nine percent of all the German startup companies. This percentage makes it a hub of startups in the country, which continues to thrive through both government and private sector support. This helps the startup hub to maintain a viable ecosystem which is rich with reward; both monetarily and internationally, especially when it comes to job creation. Reports show that many of these startups are expanding to Asia to penetrate the market. This large market would bode well for the need for even more startup jobs, as demand for startup products rise. Studies indicate that most startup companies within this ecosystem currently have 13.2 employees and plan on expanding their hires to include another 7.5 employees soon. With this statistic, it comes as no surprise, as wonderful as it is, that ninety-percent of all startup founders within this ecosystem regard their current situation positively.
