The cover story of the upcomming issue of Wired Magazine is highlighting "Europe's 100 hottest startups" by listing ten companies from each city they consider a startup hub. On the list are startups from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, London, Istanbul, Helsinki, Berlin, Stockholm, Tel Aviv, and Moscow.
Reading the list at the ArcticStartup office we have a few "but what about's" that are missing from the cities we pay attention to, but it's good to get an outside opinion of what startups are attracting attention outside of the region.
My only complaint is that they stuck with startups located in only ten cities. I'm sure it helps Wired take photos and build a narrative, but it really excludes a number of startups that should be on a European top list.
Without further ado, here's the list of Startups from cities we cover. Subscribers can already find the full article online at Wired, or on their iPad version.
- Grand Cru
- Steam Republic
- Grey Area
Helsinki's Mobile Backstage, who tipped us off to this list, points out that they're hiring and have set up an office in San Francisco. The job posting can be found on our Job Board.
