European Web Start-Ups Map

CityMaps uses brand logos to make city maps more useable. Logos and names of schools/cinemas/theatres/restaurants/cafes/banks appear next to the streets' names. What if we create a map of Europe all sucessful web start ups on it?

CityMaps is a view of New York City, Austin and San Francisco through its logos alone. Rather than using satellite images, Street View or legends for schools and restaurants, the map uses branding in its purest form--along with offers for all sorts of corresponding coupons--to help you discover somewhere you’d like to go.

I'm thinking of using the same idea for mapping web start ups to cities around Europe? Thoughts?
