Abstract:
Cientifica's Emtech Index 2012-13 Analyses Whether It Should Be Singapore, Zurich, Doha or Delhi?

Where Is The Best Place To Commercialise Emerging Technologies?

Ilkley, UK | Posted on October 15th, 2012

In the 21st century capital, technology and entrepreneurs have no borders. In an interconnected world where deals can be done, money can be transferred, and services delivered around the world in an instant, with hardware following close behind, how can entrepreneurs work out where to locate? Silicon Valley? London? Zurich? Singapore or even Doha?

For some entrepreneurs, traditional factors such as close personal links, ties to capital on to a specific region will hold sway but for a growing number of footloose entrepreneurs the world is their oyster. From smart grids to synthetic biology, geographical location is now being determined by access to capital, early adopters and smart people.

Cientifica's annual EmTech Index highlights the best, and worst places to set up an emerging technology business based on data generated from the World Economic Forum's (WEF) annual "Global Competitiveness Report"1 which features data for 144 economies.
