More interesting data published from Startup Genome project on startup ecosystems throughout the world. (See my previous blog post Startup Genome Project: ESSENTIAL reading for Internet Startups).
From the data gathered so far, the top 25 places to build a startup are listed below. Each ecosystem has its own defining characteristics, for example:
- Silicon Valley: Biggest throughput. Strong early stage funding ecosystem. More mentors. Most Ambitious. High Risk.
- New York City: Diverse. Niche Focus. Marketplace and Social Network focus. High risk.
- London: Well educated. Bet big on perceived proven winners. Project Management / E-Commerce Focus. Low Risk.
