I take care of everything Europe at AngelList, the platform for startups. I love sneakers and live in Berlin.
The beauty of the London startup ecosystem is that all parts of the startup value chain are worldclass: Universities and research institutions as an innovation engine, successful entrepreneurs and angel investors act as mentors, a financing ecosystem that ranges from early to late stage, creative input and thinking from all of the arts, tech companies and large industry, and finally some of the world’s leading media companies. There are few places in the world that can claim this combination of assets to be natural, and while there are still lots to work on, the breadth of startups in London is a testament to these origins.

I stand by this. Also, read the report - London is coming in at 3rd place after SF/SV and NY. Very interesting data in there.
