3 thoughts on “London vs Other European Startup Hubs”

  1. I agree London shouldn’t be viewed as the centre of the European startup scene. In fact I wouldn’t say it’s the best place in the UK to be based. Biased (http://www.rookieoven.com/2012/09/05/5-benefits-of-basing-your-startup-in-scotland/) but the central belt of Scotland is an ideal location, with Glasgow and Edinburgh there is plenty of talent, low cost of living and an excellent quality of life.

    Aside from my own allegiances Newcastle (Ignite100) and Birmingham have a lot to offer startups.

  2. I think, now that allot of start-ups are focused on the internet, start-up companies are gradually finding it easier to settle on the outskirts of London and its busy city buzz, with less expensive set-up but yet closely connected to the big boys, but at the same time, I understand what you say and cities, as you mentioned, are well equipped in hosting start-ups.
