The U.S. is still the world’s leading startup nation, with Silicon Valley continuing to dominate the GSER 2023 global rankings despite having a reduced market share compared to previous years. Thirteen of the top 30 global ecosystems are based in the U.S., with impressive movement from Miami in particular thanks to an increase in the number of large exits, growth in the count of early-stage funding deals, and the number of unicorns growing from five to seven.

To create the 2023 rankings, we measured six Success Factors in each ecosystem:

  • Performance
  • Funding
  • Market Reach
  • Connectedness
  • Talent & Experience
  • Knowledge

Each of these factors is assessed and awarded a score of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. For more information, please see the Methodology.

Here are the top 30 U.S. tech startup ecosystems.
