The rankings are based on how well the top 25 U.S. startup hubs attract talent, increase investments, develop specializations, create density, connect the community and build a culture of innovation. The top five cities, according to the study, are Boston, the Bay Area, Denver, Raleigh-Durham, and San Diego. “It's about as far from reality as you can possibly imagine,” Washington Technology Industry Association CEO Michael Schutzler said. Schutzler thinks Seattle should be in the top three. While Seattle scored high for attracting top talent in the study, that's where Schutzler thinks the city need more homegrown talent. “We are the No. 1 recruiter of tech talent in the country,” he said. “We are creating jobs that much faster than producing people qualified for those jobs.” The city also scored low for collaboration with corporations and mentors. “When I think where we have to grow, I look at the huge number of investors coming from outside the region to invest in Seattle,” Shapiro added. “And I wish we had the support here.”
