One of the most eye-popping GSER statistics is that the global startup economy is worth nearly $3 trillion, a rise of 20 percent from 2017. That’s the size of a not-so-small economy, larger than the GDP of the United Kingdom, France, or Brazil. Tech-driven startups aren’t just contributing to economic growth — in many ways, they are economic growth.

Here are some more impressive findings:

New global rankings

For the first time since 2017, Startup Genome has ranked the top 30 startup ecosystems around the world.
