Boston is beginning to see an influx of startups coming into the city from along Route 128, representing a “dramatic shift” in density and geography, said Jay Batson, angel investor and also a builder of Boston TechScene – an interactive map of tech startups in Boston community.
The density of tech startups in Boston is getting similar to Silicon Valley. There have been over 780 tech startups in Boston, which created more than 17,800 job opportunities and raised funding over $5 billion, according to the online map today. When the rocket-high housing expenditure in Silicon Valley becomes a serious issue to startup founders, Boston is taking advantage of its affordable space and college talent pool. Besides the areas with high startup density on the map above, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh is planning to make Roxbury another Innovation District together with shared workspaces in Chelsea, Charlestown, and Framingham.
