London, UK (Scicasts) - “There is a revolution going on – the global startup revolution,” writes Jean-Francois Gauthier, CEO and Founder of Startup Genome, in the latest Global Startup Ecosystem Report.
The UK government recently pledged to provide £26.3 billion to safeguard the national research and innovation base, from April 2016 to April 2021. In the meantime, London ranks 3rd among global hubs for startups, behind Silicon Valley and New York City.
However, amidst many individual success stories, we often tend to forget the supporting players in the ecosystem – innovation centres, incubators, startup hubs. They come in different shapes and forms but all aim to provide the infrastructure, sometimes seed funding and, most importantly, business advice and support to the newborn companies.
