To take the tech news you read to a new level, every week, we’ll be connecting a trending news topic with hot startups you should know about!
Our startup picks for this week were sparked by a Telegraph UK piece on how Facebook fuels startup growth (particularly in Europe) with its platform. In the last 5 years, Facebook has paid out more than $8 million to developers, and in the last year alone, has contributed over $10 billion dollars to the European economy.
The below European startups (that we’ve pulled from our platform) are currently tapping into Facebook’s platform as part of their business offering:
NextSocial: Berlin-based social network buying and selling platform with customers in over 50 countries
DropGifts: Dutch company which turns Facebook fans into brand ambassadors via social gifting
Getyoo: From Brussels, Getyoo powers offline activities by connecting to social media networks
Geewa: Czech web and mobile social game platform, counted as one of the Top 100 Facebook applications
