JOIN FORCES

CONNECTING ECOSYSTEMS

On May 10th, StartupAmsterdam, Startup Genome, and TNW will host the third annual StartupCity Summit: a place to share insights, and discuss the current and future role of local governments in creating flourishing tech ecosystems.

This year, leaders from 150 of the world’s most active startup cities will gather in one room. Join an empowering network of over 250 city representatives to create, develop, and connect our ecosystems together.

We’re very proud to announce that this year’s StartupCity Summit will also host the global launch of the 2019 Global Startup Ecosystem Report by Startup Genome. The annual report will release the 2019 rankings and insights of top global tech ecosystems. For the first year, the report will also reveal its new methodology, developed together with Hello Tomorrow.

If you’re a city representative looking to grow your tech ecosystem, apply now for the StartupCity Summit – together, we can shape the future.

STARTUPCITY SUMMIT 2019

MAKE AN IMPACT

The StartupCity Summit recognizes that tech ecosystems are growing faster than ever before. The Summit brings together leading city governments, regional governments, and private ecosystem leaders that have taken forward-looking steps in shaping the future of development and innovation.

Despite momentum, challenges like digital transformation, scaling, gender diversity, talent retention, and more remain obstacles to the development of ecosystems around the globe.

That’s why this year’s StartupCity Summit provides an open space for participants to join forces to tackle these challenges head-on, and make an impact on the global ecosystem.
