24 for ’24: Explore global tech hubs for future software and support centers.

In a recent article published by Site Selection magazine, the emergence of “second-tier” tech cities as potential global tech hubs was discussed. The article analyzed data from the National Venture Capital Association and Pitchbook to identify cities and states that are gaining traction in the tech industry. The rankings were based on factors such as venture capital deals, investment, company exits, fundraising rounds, and investment.

Some of the key findings from the data analysis include:

  • The top states for tech investment were California, Massachusetts, and New York, which are well-known tech powerhouses.
  • States such as Maryland, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania were identified as emerging tech states, showing significant growth in tech investment.
  • At the metro level, Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and San Jose were the top metros for tech investment.
  • Emerging tech metros included Durham, North Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Denver-Aurora, Colorado.
  • Connections to universities and academic institutions were found to be a common factor in emerging tech cities.
  • The article also highlighted specific examples of emerging tech hubs. Maryland, for instance, has seen a rise in innovation and startup activity centered around the University of Maryland. The establishment of the Quantum Technology Center at the university has attracted both government and private sector partners. Similarly, Durham, North Carolina, has become a hot spot for tech investment with the presence of several venture capital firms and strong university connections.

    Overall, the data analysis suggests that the landscape of tech hubs is evolving, with new cities and states emerging as viable options for tech investors and startups. This trend is driven by factors such as the next generation of tech founders and venture capitalists, as well as the presence of universities and institutions fostering innovation and entrepreneurship.
