Seattle ranks #4 as startup hub worldwide
We’re honored by the announcement by Startup Genome that Seattle is the fourth best place to start a company. While we’d like to be first, of course, we have to say that we’re in awfully good company, since this was a global ranking. We are just behind Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv and Los Angeles, but ahead of the Big Apple and Bean Town.
This is even more notable since Seattle moved up from 13th a year ago. The city ranked high in talent, funding, support and entrepreneurial mindset. Startup Genome has compiled data on more than 50,000 startups around the world and this project is the first attempt to provide an in-depth look at entrepreneurialism on a global scale.
The analysis was produced in cooperation with UC Berkley, Stanford and Telefonica Digital, covering a range of topics that are believed to be characteristic of startup ecosystems: Startup Output, Funding, Company Performance, Talent, Support Infrastructure, Entrepreneurial Mindset, Trendsetting Tendencies and Ecosystem Differentiation.
