‘AngelList is a platform for startups—started by the dudes who do Venture Hacks.’ It lists over 650k profiles of entrepreneurs, start-up professionals, VCs and business angels – globally. We’re preparing an analysis of the gender gap in the global startup ecosystem and access to financing, which will be disclosed just before the Women’s Forum which takes place soon in Deauville, France. AngelList, as source, has a strong bias towards the United-States. However it’s interesting to look at which places, which markets attract most interest from global investors. In the chart below, we only show the first destination for a given country (this is either the country name, or a main city). Many places have a vibrant start-up ecosystem and don’t show up in this board. Many countries still need to reach out to their Diaspora in the United-States and Europe to build a well financed start-up ecosystem, to create global networks of experts.
