Page 32 • MICEBTN - May-June 2018 Berlin is Nestpick’s pick of the world’s best cities for ‘entrepreneurial millennials’ A NEW study shows the top cities for entrepreneurial millennials based on factors such as startup ecosystem and employment. The study results, by furnished apartment search engine Nestpick, have been released as part of the larger Millennial City Ranking which Nestpick released earlier in 2018. The study pinpoints which cities are successfully attracting this generation, and therefore a core future workforce. The tables reveal the top 20 cities for entrepreneurial millennials based on their Business Ecosystem and the top 20 best cities for mille- nials. “Millennials grew up in a shrinking world, where the internet opened doors their parents never could have dreamed of, and budget airlines made those avenues real possibilities. It’s now possible to live and work anywhere in the world, and these opportunities are shaping how our planet will look to future generations.” says Omer Kucukdere, managing director of Nestpick. “We must learn to adapt to the needs of younger people in order to have a thriving econo- my, and we believe that this ranking offers valuable insights to those cities looking for regeneration from a younger demographic.” Further findings: • Beijing, China ranks highest for employment, followed by American cities San Francisco and Austin. • New York City, USA has the highest score for its Startup ecosystem, followed by San Francisco, USA and London, UK. • Hong Kong, China ranks highest for Tourism, fol- lowed by Bangkok, Thailand and London, UK. • Guadalajara, Mexico has the highest score for Housing, followed by fellow Mexican city Monter- rey and Medellin, Colombia. • Bangkok, Thailand ranks highest for Food, fol- lowed by Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Lima, Peru. • Oslo, Norway has the highest score for Transport, followed by Washington DC, USA and Paris, France. • Japanese cities Tokyo and Osaka rank joint highest for Health, fol- lowed by Singapore. • Seoul, South Korea has the highest score for Internet Speed, followed by Bergen, Norway and Denver, USA. • London, UK ranks highest for Universities, followed by Paris, France and Seoul, South Korea. • China and Hong Kong rank highest for access to contraception, followed by the UK. • Norway ranks highest for gender equality, followed by Finland and Sweden. • New Zealand ranks highest for immigration tolerance, followed by Canada and Norway.
