The Best Location to Launch a Tech Startup



An infographic by bizbrain.org addresses where the best location is for a new startup. Silicon Valley, New York, and London are all compared to each other in regards to various statistics, including product type, available amount of funding, mentorship, and average entrepreneur age. One fact that sets Silicon Valley apart from New York and London is the size of its startup ecosystem. Silicon Valley’s startup ecosystem is 3x that of New York Citys 4.5x London, 12.5x Berlin, and 38 Boulders combined. In addition, it is more likely for games, social networks, infrastructure, and user-generated content to be created in Silicon Valley rather than in either New York or London.. Bizbrain.org’s infographic also states that Silicon Valley founders have started twice as many startups than their New York and London counterparts.
