Silicon Valley is still #1 but New York just beat Boston as the #2 city for startups


We all know that Silicon Valley is the undisputed king of the hill when it comes to startup funding but a new study just dubbed New York #2 now ahead of Boston which is seeing a small decline.

Of course, New York and Silicon Valley may be the top hubs in the US according to the Compass report, but how do they stack up over time? To answer this question, we analyzed over 21,000 Angel, Seed, Series A, Series B, and Series C deals made between 2006 and today. We also included startups based in forty American metropolitan regions. (Source – Mattermark)
