How does NZ measure up? Startup Genome
NZ has taken part in the last three years of Startup Genome’s annual survey of startup ecosystems and is doing well in the activation phase.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The 2019 Global Startup Ecosystem Report (GSER) has been launched at The Next Web Conference. The GSER is the world’s most comprehensive and widely-read research on startups based on data from thousands of startup founders and research on millions of companies.
The 2019 GSER provides insights and guidance to public and private leaders in dozens of countries and cities — from Bahrain to New Zealand— about how to cultivate vibrant startup ecosystems. The report outlines key success factors for startups, constituting the new science for entrepreneurial ecosystem development.
