Startup Genome is today sharing some of its findings on the top startup ecosystems, providing a data-based look into how they compare — starting with what it’s found to be the three most active startup hubs: Silicon Valley, New York City, and London.
According to the research, here are the top 25 ecosystems for your startup;
1.Silicon Valley (San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, Oakland)
