​​​AUSTIN – Savills Studley recently released their list of the top 22 cities in the world “at the forefront of the global tech industry,” with Austin taking the #1 spot. 

The research program’s goal is to understand the many diverse drivers that make up good cities for the tech industry.

According to the report, there are five main things that define the top tech cities:

  • Tech environment – How big of a tech hub is it in its global region?
  • Business environment – Presence of homegrown start-ups and incubators
  • City buzz and wellness – Is it a top choice for expanding global tech companies?
  • Talent pool – Does it have a vibrant urban environment that attracts talent?
  • Housing affordability – Cost of real estate
The index used to rank these 22 cities measures what makes a successful tech city and is comprised of 100 individual metrics grouped into those five categories.
