As digital transformation continues to disrupt established industries and business models, where in the US offers the best environment for tech start-ups to base the next Amazon or Uber?
Managed IT Services provider, Sungard Availability Services, has analyzed the performance of ten leading US cities. Each is benchmarked against metrics including start-up survival rates, graduate talent, and density of entrepreneurs and those in technical occupations, as well as day-to-day costs such as office space and commuting which can make or break a fledgling digital business.
The findings are showcased in an interactive map which provides a drill-down of individual criteria as well as overall rankings. Surprisingly, the city rated #1 for digital business is nowhere near Silicon Valley, dispelling the myth that our thriving start-up culture is concentrated in a zip code that starts with a "9".
