Startup Scene's

Here are the top Startup scenes that are growing communities of startup businesses, angel and VC investors:

  1. SILICON VALLEY - Remains the gold standard for startup ecosystems.

  2. NYC - As the top startup breeding ground on the east coast, new york city rivals SV.

  3. SAN FRANCISCO - Lots of startup guru's already make San Fran their base of operations, mainly due to the close proximity of SV.

  4. SEATTLE - Seattle has one of the most robust tech foundations of anywhere outside the bay area. Large concentrations of extremely bright people from a variety of fields make it there place of business. Local companies like Amazon and Microsoft put Seattle on the map. Although it dropped from its #4 rank in the last report, the tech space here is responsible for about 12% new job growth in the last two years, according to the state's Employment Security Department.

  5. PORTLAND - Portland has emerged as one more than just a cultural hub. It's now becoming a growing startup hub.

  6. WATERLOO - PortlaWaterloo has one of the strongest connections to Silicon Valley. Lots of people from Waterloo end up working in SV and sometimes visa versa.

  7. MONTREAL - Has been leading the north for years with a strong network of VC's and Angel investors.

  8. Amsterdam, Netherlands
    While not as large of a startup hub as London or Berlin, Amsterdam's startup infrastructure has attracted successful companies like Startupbootcamp — a global network of startup accelerators.

  9. Vancouver, Canada
    Vancouver today is powered by software development, biotechnology, and entertainment. By contract, its local economy used to be sustained by mining, forestry, and shipping industries.

    The up-and-coming startup Slack opened an office there because of Canada's immigration policies and a time zone in Canada that matched up to San Francsico, according to the report.

  10. Toronto, Canada
    Toronto is down nine spots since the 2012 rankings due to its slower growth. According to Compass, the most economically dominant city in Canada could be more competitive with better access to venture capital in the area.

  11. Sydney, Australia
    Successful companies like Atlassian, Campaign Monitor, and Freelancer.com demonstrate Sydney's potential for solid startups. Two-thirds of the startup activity in Australia happens in this city, according to the report.

    Higher performance, funding, and market statistics would make it an even stronger contender, Compass suggests.

  12. Bangalore, India
    The third most populated city in India, once known as "the world's back office," is the startup leader in the country.

    "The Indian hub of Bangalore has had explosive growth in the last few years," the report notes.

  13. Austin, US
    Austin was first recognized as a tech hub thanks to industry titans like IBM and Dell. Here, talent in the area is not only proficient but also less expensive than the North American average.

    "Austin’s consistent performance in the tech sector has led to a tech-savvy workforce, counting over 100,000 people, a high number considering its 1.8M population," the report noted.

  14. Moscow, Russia
    In Russia's capital city, startup culture is an emerging movement. With some of the best software engineers in the world, Moscow has created companies like Yandex, which is comparable to a Russian Google, and Mail.ru.

    "Moscow’s higher education infrastructure feeds the ecosystem with some of the best software engineers in the world, namely taking the top spot in the TopCoder challenge," the report noted.

  15. São Paulo, Brazil
    A vibrant city called home by more than 20 million people, São Paulo boasts the best quality talent in South America.

    "The city has around 20 million people and is a vibrant cultural and financial hub with more than $2 billion in daily trade on its local stock exchange," the report noted.

    While the city has improved its rank since 2012, it faces several challenges to entrepreneurship, including economic downturn, investor confidence, and high costs.

  16. Paris, France
    With the help of public grants, subsidies, and loans, Paris has maintained its #12 rank for its startup ecosystem. Entrepreneurs in the French capital are largely interested in the sharing economy, collaborative consumption, and artificial intelligence.

    "Two of the ecosystem’s recent success stories are Criteon (worth more than $2B) and BlaBlaCar (undisclosed valuation, but expected to be the next French billion dollar company)," the report stated.

    "It is because of these and many other great startups that Paris-based entrepreneurs are beginning to attract attention from U.S.-based venture capitalists."

  17. Singapore
    Today, Singapore is one of the world's top financial centers.

    The government's support of the local startup scene has played a large role in its speedy development, according to Compass.

    "Singapore’s geographic location and deep business relationships with booming Asian markets means local startups benefit from access to affluent consumers and multinational corporations to scale their business," the report stated.

  18. Berlin, Germany
    Berlin's tech environment ramped up after 2010 and has moved in the rankings since 2012 when it was #15. Here, startups could create as many as 40,000 new jobs by 2020.

    "Startups in the Berlin ecosystem have historically been successful in markets like e-Commerce, gaming, and marketplaces, with new startups showing potential in other verticals such as SaaS and adtech," the report noted. "A strong creative scene and low living costs have resulted in a soaring inflow of national and international tech talent."

  19. Chicago, US
    Up from its #10 rank in 2012, Chicago is picking up steam and has between 1,800 to 3,000 active startups.

    "A key reason for Chicago’s growth is, without a doubt, the exceptional success of a few local startups," the report stated. "Chicago is the birthplace of Groupon and GrubHub, and is currently home to over ten unicorns — startups with a valuation over $1 Billion."

  20. London, United Kingdom
    London has risen in the ranking since the last report when it was #7. Tech City UK, a government-funded startup initiative, suggests London-based startups alone could make 10,000 jobs in the latter half of 2015.

    "The London startup ecosystem stands out for its exceptional access to affluent consumers and powerful corporations, solid funding landscape, and ambitious government initiatives," the report stated.

  21. Tel Aviv, Israel
    Compass attributes Tel Aviv's focus on tech to its proximity to Tel Aviv University and the Israeli Defense Forces. But it also notes that Israel's performance could benefit from more international talent, which is 40% lower than in Silicon Valley.

  22. Boston, US
    Boston distinguishes itself from other tech hubs on this list by focusing on life science, biotech, robotic, and pharma-related enterprises, where it is a worldwide leader.

    "The city has also been successful at producing enterprise software and big data companies," the report stated. "Entrepreneurs in Boston generally benefit from a dense network of mentors and supportive organizations such as Bolt, Techstars Boston, Harvard Innovation Lab, and MassChallenge—the latter claiming to be the largest startup accelerator in the world."

  23. Los Angeles Orange County, US
    Snapchat and Tinder are among Los Angeles-Orange County's success stories.

    "The city is estimated to have 200,000 engineers hailing from a variety of talent pools such as the California Institute of Technology," the report noted.
