1. Silicon Valley, California

This goes without saying. Silicon Valley is home to some of the biggest tech companies in the world including Intuit, Apple, and Google.

It’s not exactly a city but deserves its place on the list for what it has done for startups.

2. Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv is to Israel what Silicon Valley is to the US. It ranks third when it comes to talent, making it a good option for a startup. Despite being a small city, Tel Aviv is rich in technology and funding is also easily accessible.

Israel is fast becoming the hub for startups. It, in fact, attracts more venture capital per person than any other country in the world. 

3. Singapore, Singapore

Singapore is expensive but a good option due to massive government support for startups. There are many grants available, making it a lucrative option to start a new business.

4. Bengaluru, India

Despite red tape, Bengaluru ranks high due to the high availability of affordable employees. Thanks to massive government support, it’s now the third largest startup ecosystem.

5. London, England

London has a growing startup scene, however, the controversy surrounding Brexit puts it in a bad state. Hence, most aspirants now prefer to go to cities like Copenhagen, Denmark, and Berlin, Germany.
