There’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur.
There is a massive amount of money available — U.S. companies received $70.3 billion in funding in Q3 2021 — and early-stage companies don’t even have to be based in Silicon Valley or other traditional startup cities to take advantage.
That’s why we’ve published our first York IE Fastest-Growing Startup Cities report.

Fastest-Growing Startup Cities
The report highlights these 10 up-and-coming U.S. cities where startup business is booming:
- Dover, Delaware
- St. Louis, Missouri
- Raleigh, North Carolina
- Oakland, California
- Berkeley, California
- Phoenix, Arizona
- Columbus, Ohio
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- Arlington, Virginia
- Scottsdale, Arizona
Dover, for example, experienced huge growth thanks to two eight-figure funding rounds: a $20 million Series A by Discourse, an open source discussion platform, and a $19.5 million Series C by Nectero Medical, which is developing a new treatment for aneurysms.
Inside the Report
The full report provides detailed Q3 funding information for each of the 10 cities, including total funds raised, number of rounds and the companies that had the biggest rounds.
Additionally, the report ranks the 10 biggest U.S. startup cities by funding. San Francisco and New York ran away with the top two spots (no surprise there), but some cities you may not have guessed also made the list, including San Diego and Philadelphia.
