Wrocław was awarded a coefficient of 3.6, while Warsaw and Kraków achieved scores of 2.8 and 2.9 respectively. That said, both Warsaw and Kraków do rank above Wrocław overall in terms of scale.
One of the reasons for Wrocław’s high coefficient score is the quantity and quality of its students. Indeed, the report awarded Wrocław a maximum 5 star ranking for its students, ranking it one of the best academic cities in Europe.
We are glad that the future of Wroclaw has been assessed positively by independent experts, which vindicates the startup policy on behalf of the city. At the same time, we realise that the development of the startup ecosystem depends on the hard work of many people, not on the results of prestigious reports.
Overall, the report ranks Wrocław in 33rd place in the “2nd tier” city category, ahead of the likes of Hannover, Sevilla, Montpelier, Malmo, Brno and Florence.
