Friends, as a founder I am proud to have participated in this report. This is important work that Startup Genome is doing.
If you care about changing our world for the better, and believe entrepreneurship is the fastest route there, check out the 2017 Global Startup Ecosystem Report by Startup Genome. It’s long- 151 pages- but most of you, I am sure, are good speed reading skimmers. Worth your time friends. We are in this world together and need to do better at working together if we ever expect to change it.
Below is the opening from the report. You will find the link to the entire report below.
To your highest purpose and best self friends.

Every city has the right to participate in the global startup revolution and reap the benefits of job creation, innovation, and economic growth. As this Report documents, however, too many places are currently excluded from this revolution. We invite more people and organizations to join this growing global community that seeks to identify the code of how startup ecosystems function, evolve, and generate successful startups.
We provide a way for entrepreneurs everywhere to tell us about their journeys and their ecosystems. The survey data, supplemented with secondary research and data from global and local partners, helps create the world’s most comprehensive primary research on startups.
For startup leaders, investors, and other ecosystem stakeholders, we provide data-driven insights to inform strategic decisions as to locations and guide actions to mitigate ecosystem weaknesses. We work with city leaders and members to capture and assess the efficacy of policies and practices, and help them learn from each other about what does and doesn’t work.
Ecosystems develop along a lifecycle, and in each phase of the lifecycle ecosystems have different strengths and weaknesses. Scarce resources must be focused on the right actions at the right time for maximum impact in increasing ecosystem performance.
That requires clarity, objectivity, and local consensus, and that’s why we are building the first precisely evidence-based policymaking engine to guide these efforts. We look forward to working with more places and learning more about your startup ecosystems.
