Compass.co formerly Startup Genome has announced 2015 Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking. It has been almost three years since the last Startup Ecosystem Report was released (in November 2012), and since then the startup sector has grown at a booming pace.
The centerpiece of the 2015 Startup Ecosystem Ranking is updated and revamped component index, which ranks the top 20 startup ecosystems around the world. The index is produced by ranking ecosystems along five major components: Performance, Funding, Talent, Market Reach, and Startup Experience.

One important caveat to note: This index does not currently include startup ecosystems from China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. It has been challenging for Compass to get survey participants and complete data. We hope to have these ecosystems included in our index later this year. While we have not completed our analysis yet, we particularly expect:
- Beijing to rank in the top 5
- Shanghai to rank in the top 15
The following ecosystems all scored highly and were contenders for a spot among the top 20:
- Atlanta, Delhi, Denver-Boulder, Dublin, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Stockholm, and Waterloo.
