We studied the culture, infrastructure and ecosystems of our selected Startup Hub Cities: Boston, NYC, Washington DC, and Chicago.
We analyzed the startup experience in each location in terms of staffing, civic incentives, office facilities, communities, human capital, investment capital, incubators/accelerators, and the area quality of life.
