While you may think of Silicon Valley when you hear the word “startup,” Canadians don’t have to venture far to find themselves in an entrepreneurial hub.
Despite their size, Kingston, Ontario, (eighth) and Victoria, BC, (ninth) find themselves very high in this ranking, a score that the website calls “remarkable.”
On the international scale, Canada performed very highly, finishing in fourth place, just behind the United States, the United Kingdom, and Israel.
