Slovakia has 3 cities in the top 1000 and is ranked 16th in Eastern Europe.
Since 2023, Slovakia lost 7 spots in the Global Startup Ecosystem Index, having now positioned itself as 65th worldwide.
Slovakia has an enviable geographical location, allowing easy access to the startup hub of Vienna (less than 1-hour ride from Bratislava), sharing a border and language with Czechia, and adjacent to two of Eastern Europe’s largest markets: Ukraine and Poland. This allows Slovakian startups to tap into several markets with high potential. Slovakia is also one of the most politically stable countries in the region. With an innovative startup scene and lots of investment opportunities, especially in the research and development of digital products, Slovakia’s ecosystem has much growth potential.
