Eatable Adventures recognized in the Financial Times’ ranking of Europe’s Leading Start-up Hubs 2024

Spain ranks third in the FT/Statista/Sifted ranking of countries with the most hubs, following the UK in first place and Germany in second.

The Financial Times, in partnership with Statista, as its research collaborator, and Sifted, has unveiled the first edition of Europe’s foremost ranking of incubators and accelerators, encompassing 125 centers across 21 countries. This ranking shines a spotlight on Europe’s dynamic ecosystem, where emerging markets are leaving an indelible mark with disruptive projects spanning various domains. A new frontier of opportunities is unfolding in Europe, transcending Silicon Valley, beckoning investors, corporations, and governments to propel innovation across diverse market segments to unprecedented heights.

As noted by FT/Statista/Sifted, “what has emerged in Europe, at least, is a far more diffuse and diverse tech ecosystem, supported by a scattered network of incubators and accelerators across the region.”

In terms of market performance, Spain celebrates a significant achievement, securing the third spot in this prestigious ranking with a total of 15 hubs. Leading the pack is the UK with 24 hubs, closely trailed by Germany in second place boasting 16 hubs.
