Dashmote, a Dutch Artificial Intelligence startup that helps companies analyze visual data to discover trends and gain valuable market insights, yesterday won a Digital Top 50 Award in the category B2B startups.


Google, McKinsey, and Rocket Internet joined forces with Tech Open Air Berlin, held from June 19 – 22, for the 2018 edition of the Digital Top 50 Awards (DT50). Ten Top 50 nominees battled in each award category during this year’s edition of the festival.

Dashmote ensures that B2C companies in FMCG, fashion, food & beverages, and consumer electronics are on top of their game thanks to its proprietary technology based on Artificial Intelligence offering visual trend analysis and market intelligence. With the help of Dashmote’s visual analytics platform, companies can discover trends and market insights much faster, which in turn expedites product development and marketing.

Dashmote, founded in 2014 by Dutchmen Dennis Tan (CEO), Stefan Tan (CFO), and Austrian-born Matthaeus Schreder (CPO) currently serves well-known companies as clients, namely Coca-Cola, Heineken, Unilever, and Philips, from its headquarters in Amsterdam and satellite offices in Vienna (Austria) and New York (US).

“For us, this award is the acknowledgment of all the hard work we’ve put into Dashmote in the past three years. With our business model for the past year and a half – discovering trends and market insights with visual data – we have been quite successful, securing large clients and growing the team to 20+ employees. We, as a team, feel that this award is an homage to all of our supporters, clients and the growth of the European entrepreneurial ecosystem”, Dennis Tan, CEO, and co-founder, comments.

“With Dashmote, we have a great winner in the B2B startup category of the Digital Top 50 Awards. What we as the jury liked from a broader perspective is that Dashmote aims for new frontiers in the field of marketing, trying to bring analytics, AI, and images together. We believe Dashmote is reaching for a very interesting, scalable market at the right time, with the right technology, and a great team,” says Karel Dörner, leader of the McKinsey Digital Labs Europe.
