Cities to launch a tech startup

Suppose you could set up a startup just about anywhere in the world. Where would you go?

Cork City at the foot of Ireland’s rebel county ? Or maybe Austin, Texas the home home of SXSW, live music and BBQs? Or Copenhagen, the happy capital City of Denmark and  hygge (cosiness) ? Or perhaps Cardiff – the fast transforming capital of Wales.

I looked at the pros and cons of each City in the FT. Cork and Austin are two cities that I have been closely involved with in setting up tech companies but I think I achieved as much objectivity as possible and so I did not mention the companies I’ve been involved in.
