The by-word for tech innovation, Silicon Valley remains the ultimate global center of tech excellence, according to Startup Genome’s 2023 State of the Global Startup Ecosystem report. That’s despite the fact that the U.S. has experienced reduced market share compared to previous years, and it has also been battered by the storm of recent huge job layoffs. “Some critics have been rooting for the crisis to take Silicon Valley down a peg or two,” says JF Gauthier, founder and CEO of Startup Genome, in the report.
“But anyone vested in entrepreneurial innovation should root for a Silicon Valley that can continue to lead and strengthen the global startup revolution by investing in and partnering with great people and organizations all around the world.”
The report has more good news. It reaffirms that the U.S. remains the world’s leading startup region and 13 of the top 30 global ecosystems are based in the U.S. The economic impact and value of each location, how much early stage funding is apportioned to its tech startups, as well as exit value are all criteria used to rank inclusion.
The five ecosystems that follow Silicon Valley is importance are: New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, and Washington DC.
