2022 | StartupBlink View the Global Startup Map p. 14 One common reason is that our country rankings take into account population size but city rankings do not, ensuring we adjust expectations from countries with relatively low populations in comparison to countries with larger populations. Another reason is that within a specific country, it often happens that some cities have positive momentum while others decline. This is especially relevant in countries with a substantial representation of cities in the top 1000, such as the United States, which has hundreds of cities shuffling through the rankings. StartupBlink also clusters cities together when they are part of the same urban environment. The most obvious example of this is the San Francisco Bay Area, which includes multiple cities, like San Jose and Palo Alto. The same is done in cities around the world when those locations are part of the same ecosystem. A few examples are Sydney in Australia (clustered with Darlinghurst, North Sydney and several other cities) and The Hague in The Netherlands (clustered with Leiden, Wassenaar and Zoetermeer). By clustering urban locations into one ecosystem, and not taking into account the population size of the cities in the algorithm, we might seem to be giving an unfair advantage to bigger cities. The truth is that these cities enjoy an advantage in reality, not solely in our algorithm. Bigger cities, from the sheer quantity of entrepreneurs and economic activity, are simply more likely to do better than smaller cities. However, if you use our population filter in the interactive map ranking tables, some inspiring examples of small cities punching above their weight are clearly evident; notable examples include Santa Barbara, California (USA), Kingston (Canada), Cambridge (United Kingdom), Boulder, Colorado (USA), and Burlington, Vermont (USA). Another important element that provides a ranking advantage to startup ecosystems is the size of the domestic market. Ecosystems with a massive population and market can scale startups much larger without competing internationally. Examples include ecosystems in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, and Russia. Results from these countries reflect massive potential, but please note that these might not be the best locations to relocate to unless you plan to target their domestic markets, which can require deep knowledge and understanding of the location and its startup ecosystem. Total Score Ingredients Each ecosystem has a total score, which is the sum of 3 subscores measuring Quantity, Quality, and Business environment. A specific analysis of Subscore Results is available in the Analysis by Subscore section of this report. The total score is designed to be comparative; It is not only used as a mechanism for sorting and ranking ecosystems, but also provides insights into the gaps between ecosystems in absolute terms.
