There are a lot of cities that chose to focus more on start-up businesses rather than those that are established.
Below are a few of the top cities to consider if you are an entrepreneur looking to start your business:
Tel Aviv, Israel.
Now Israel is known for being the start-up nation throughout the world, so it come as no surprise that Tel Aviv would be on this list.
All over Tel Aviv you can find entrepreneurs working on their start-ups, with the large, vibrant community making it a remarkable place to be. The city even has events for start-ups almost every week, everyone tries to work together and help each other out.
Most entrepreneurs in Tel Aviv have gone through the required military service, making them responsible, quick thinking and brilliant founders.
Silicon Valley, California.
Silicon is where the investors are.
Now Silicon Valley has practically every type of investor that can be found in any type of industry. Home to some of the best engineers - Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Microsoft – all the headquarters can be found in Silicon Valley. Companies like these hire only the best and if you have the right pitch, vision and perhaps a bit of luck on your side you may be able to get some of the top talent to join your start-up.
Start-ups are practically a tradition in Silicon Valley , the majority of people you will meet are either founders, working at a start-up or planning to leave their job and start their own.
The opportunities and resources are endless.
Hoboken, New Jersey.
Just across from the Hudson River, Hoboken is a city of boutiques and condos and hosts a large Tech Meetup of over 2,000 members monthly.
Stevens Institute of Technology is busy seeking investors for a tech accelerator and is also busy opening an entrepreneurship office for students. The Hoboken Business Centre also offers shared workspace through Mission Fifty.
Now Boulder is probably the best place to be for Tech entrepreneurs.
Many firms apply to this ultra-selective and successful start-up accelerator every year but only 10 are able to make it into the program. In this wonderful city there are plenty of resources and more than enough cash available to help over 200 start-ups that are trying to get into a solid venture.
Long Island City, New York.
Not long ago was it predicted that start-ups would begin flowing in east of Manhattan would transform western Queens.
Founded only recently was the Queens Tech Meetup and already it boasts over 670 members. It has been proposed that a tech incubator be introduced into the area and there are already plans to transform on of the long vacant buildings into a certified centre in order to house the new activity.
So there you have a few of the top cities for not only Tech entrepreneurs but for anyone looking to start their new business.
Don’t be put down just because things are hard – keep trying an you never know – you may become one of the next top entrepreneurs out there.
