Resulting from the technological revolution from the last decades, we observed many software startup ecosystems emerging around the globe. Having tech entrepreneurs as their main agents, some ecosystems exist for more than 50 years, while others are newly born. This difference in terms of evolution and maturity makes the task of comparing different tech hubs a challenge. Moreover, nascent ecosystems need a clear vision of how to develop their community to evolve towards a fruitful and…

A maturity model for software startup ecosystems
TLDR
A maturity model for startup ecosystems is developed, which helps to understand their evolution and dynamics and can serve as a basis for stakeholders in less mature ecosystems to analyze their environment, identify weak spots, and propose policies and practical actions for improving their ecosystems over time.

TLDR
What stages ecosystems pass through, the requirements for each of these phases and why it is possible for many ecosystems to evolve until reaching a self-sustainable level of maturity are shown.
On the Pragmatics of Requirements Engineering Practices in a Startup Ecosystem
TLDR
A tertiary study to synthesise literature in the field of requirements engineering in startups concluded that there are limited empirical studies reporting an in-depth contextual analysis on how software startups perform requirements engineering.
Lifecycle Challenges of Software Producing Organizations
TLDR
Over the course of three days, scientists and practitioners from the software production domain are brought together and the meeting of different subcommunities leads to the creation of a joint research agenda for the further development of the field.
Initial minimum viable product development in software startups : a startup ecosystem perspective
TLDR
This doctoral research identified eight main elements in the startup ecosystem that affect the startup and its product development and found that a product idea is based on a problem experienced by customers or on an unserved customer need.
The Character of Software Startup Hubs in an Emerging Ecosystem
TLDR
Using semi-structured interviews with 10 hubs in Uganda and Kenya, it is shown that most hubs combine incubation, acceleration and /or co-working space as services and provide mainly business growth incentives and notice the business and organizational effects of their incentives.
Fundamentals of Software Startups: Essential Engineering and Business Aspects
TLDR
In this chapter, six groups of theories that are already used by practical entrepreneurs and their advisors are explained including the ongoing research around them, the connections among these theories, and how they can be applied in a real case study are explained.

  • 2016
TLDR
A conceptual model of requirements engineering state-of-practice for software startups was developed and influences from the context were identified and described.
Measurements in the Early Stage Software Start-ups: A Multiple Case Study in a Nascent Ecosystem
TLDR
There is a need to create a more inclusive characterization for measurement as early start-ups in East Africa cannot yet be represented with known models.
