Denver a runner up on Startup Genome’s leading startup cities list

Denver, Amsterdam, Austin and Buenos Aires are among 20 cities listed as “runner-up” cities on Startup Genome’s list of top international startup cities. 

Excerpt:
Silicon Valley is the world's unquestioned leader in generating high-tech start-ups that launch new technologies that change the way we live and work. Many cities around the world have tried to emulate its success. But until recently, the data has been lacking to calibrate and rank how far they have come.

A new report from the Startup Genome, compiled in association with Telefónica Digital and researchers at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, rates and ranks the cities with the leading start-up ecosystems across the world. Their research draws from their online interactive tool, Startup Compass, which collects benchmarking data from over 50,000 entrepreneurs and start-ups across the world.

The report uses several external data sources as well, including data from CrunchBase, AngelList, Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, Numbeo, TechAccelerators, and Seed-DB. It also includes insights gleaned from over 50 interviews with leading entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
