The StartupBlink Global Startup Ecosystem Index highlights the best places to start businesses and shows where thriving communities of entrepreneurs already exist to support and guide entrepreneurs.
Since startup ecosystems are constantly evolving, we update this index every year based on the availability of newer data. For now, we have researched and presented all relevant information here.
StartupBlink’s Global Startup Ecosystem Index
In this section, we present the global startup ecosystem index!
StartupBlink’s Global Startup Ecosystem Index: The StartupBlink Global Startup Ecosystem Index ranks startup ecosystems across 1000 cities and 100 countries around the world, providing ecosystem rankings for each country and city. The aim of this index is to feature and rank hundreds of startup hubs instead of highlighting a few globally recognized winners. This index considers not just startups, but also other critical players of the startup ecosystem like coworking spaces, accelerators, investors, leaders, and more.
Startup Ecosystem Analysis
The Startup Ecosystem Analysis is StartupBlink’s breakdown of prominent startup ecosystems. Many cities within each region don’t have a report published yet and are open for those who wish to submit a report for that city. If you are interested in preparing your own city startup report please contact us to find out how we can feature you and your project.
