Why we chose a SaaS Cohort (again) –  Software as a Service (SaaS) as a business model is attractive and is often praised as the future of innovation. Investors love SaaS for its rapid scalability and data-driven AI learning models, low code based tech, deeptech and more. Offering creative, efficiency-driven solutions to customers, and a growth friendly business model: SaaS is really a win-win. With the unique solutions from each of our selected startups, we can’t wait to see our startups thrive in Europe’s tech space!
