Hubs for VC

With Wall Street and its larger population, NYC beats Chicago in overall economic might. Therefore, it’s worth looking at which economy is the best bet for the future. Chicago ranks 11 of all major cities as a hub for venture capitalists, pulling in 1.6% of total global dollars. New York City, on the other hand, ranks 4th worldwide with 5% of global VC money flowing to its startups.
