Startup Genome will launch Startup Genome’s flagship report at London Tech Week, the region’s crown jewel event, in collaboration with the Founders Forum, Informa Tech and London & Partners. Startup Genome and London & Partners will work closely to support and promote Startup Genome’s Global Startup Ecosystem Report (GSER), the world’s most comprehensive and widely-read research on startups. This collaboration aims to highlight London’s startup ecosystem, the #2 startup community in the world (in a tie with NYC), to create more opportunities for local startups to get national and international exposure.

The GSER is set to launch at London Tech Week on June 10, 2024 in partnership with the Founders Forum, Informa Tech, London & Partners, and the Global Entrepreneurship Network. Stephan Kuester, Managing Partner of Startup Genome, will introduce the report at 11:35AM on the event’s Founder Stage, sharing insights into the state of the global startup ecosystem, followed by a panel discussion centered around the theme of "Decentralization of Tech Success: Unveiling Startup Genome's 2024 Global Startup Ecosystem Report."

“We are excited to announce the launch of the GSER alongside London Tech Week this year. The synergy of our extensive data-driven research combined with the global community engagement of London Tech Week provides an ideal platform for startups, investors and ecosystem builders to connect and thrive towards greater success,” shares Kuester.

The GSER analyzes data from over 4.5 million companies across 300+ entrepreneurial innovation ecosystems. The 2024 edition ranks the top 30 and 10 runner-up global ecosystems, a ranking of emerging ecosystems, and an expanded regional ranking. The report, driven by a consortium of representatives from 40+ countries, looks at the current state of startup activity and related investment. It features rankings that indicate which global ecosystems are currently driving innovation.

London Tech Week will be taking place June 10 to 14 and serves as a convergence of global thought leaders, government officials, corporate executives, visionary startup founders, seasoned investors, and emerging tech talents. With up to 45,000 attendees expected throughout the week, London Tech Week offers an unparalleled platform for discussions on the transformative potential of technology in shaping societies and accelerating tech innovation.

“This collaboration reflects London Tech Week and Start Up Genome’s common goal of championing tech growth both locally and internationally. Startup Genome’s annual Global Startup Ecosystem Report is an incredibly valuable asset for everyone involved in the international high growth tech ecosystem and we are delighted to support its launch.” shares Janet Coyle CBE, Managing Director of London & Partners.
