From Wired UK’s annual survey
"The UK's capital continues to attract funding and talent, helped by the Tech City Investment Organisation, despite a shortage of a native skill"
"In Russia, online advertising has eclipsed print advertising, and financial startups are flourishing as shoppers adopt credit cards"
"Germany has had eight-figure exits since the 90s and is one of Europe's most talked-about hubs -- but when will its stars such as SoundCloud profit?"
"Stockholm's startups have the most fun -- but the examples of iZettle, Mojang and Wrapp show that they can also reach serious international scale"
"The government has relaxed the rules for work visas and there's a new coding academy, whilst startups such as BlaBlaCar continue to thrive"
"Nokia taught the Finnish capital to be sure to hedge its bets. In Rovio's wake comes a fleet of highly successful game firms"
"Wired's map of Europe is as flexible as Eurovision's -- so Israel's thriving tech capital, building on local talent and global reach, has to be in our list of cities"
"One of the newer hubs, Istanbul has had many successes -- such as Trendyol -- and will have many more now that it's learnt to love failure"
"The Dutch port easily attracts hi-tech firms but loses the more transient startups. Fintech and 3D-printing successes keep Amsterdam in our chat"
"A shortage of angels has turned startups' attention towards the state and banks to sustain the Catalonian city's momentum"
