Top 15: Europe’s biggest startup capitals

We recently did some research and ranked Europe’s biggest startup capitals. In order to do so, we collected the following information for analysis:

a) The top 80 European cities, in relation to this year’s visits on EU-Startups.com, and the associated number of visits;

b) The number of startups that are registered for each of these European cities on CrunchBase;

c) The number of startups registered on AngelList for each city.

After this, we gave each of the three numbers different weightings to get the right ratio. Given that there are many more elements to analyse, the resulting ranking is less about the real importance of each of these cities for the European startup world, and more like a mirror of the digital presence of these cities in the English-speaking startup universe.

With this in mind, here are our top European startup cities online:

1. London                   2. Paris                  3. Berlin

4. Amsterdam            5. Barcelona          6. Madrid

7. Munich                   8. Stockholm          9. Dublin

10. Hamburg            11. Milan                12. Vienna

13. Zurich                14. Helsinki             15. Copenhagen
