Within the walls of these companies, innovation is moving, changing, mixing, and creating some of the top startup companies now and of the future.

The point is that startups throughout Europe are overflowing with unique ideas and creativity.

storific startup franceMany feel that this start-up has the possibility to modify the job of waiters-inside restaurants completely. To make dining-out more convenient, users with Storific’s mobile-app can check the menu-card of the restaurant they are in and place their orders whenever they choose without waiting for staff to come to see them and take their order. Storific states that the app substantially adds to the amount of orders created-by one table and therefore a positive influence on the restaurant’s revenue. I think Storific’s founder Michael Cohen is on to something here.

    From these listed upcoming companies, it’s clear that most of them are about socializing and visiting public places. Shows great attitude of community living by Europeans. Keep it up over there. I’ve been thinking how to make such businesses work in Africa. I’m Nigerian by the way.
