San Francisco is the best city for startup entrepreneurs!

Well, that's not a surprise, dear reader(s), is it? 'Why are you telling us then, boss?' Because it's a PR email, Voice. 'Oh.' And London is on the list somewhere, a bit further down. Of course, after Brexit it won't be on the list at all, but that's another story.

Berlin, Germany, 15/05/2018 - Furnished apartment search engine, Nestpick, has released a study revealing the top 110 cities for entrepreneurial millennials, based on factors such as startup ecosystem, and employment. The results are released as part of the larger Millennial City Ranking, which Nestpick released for the second year running earlier in 2018. Nestpick conducted this study in order to pinpoint which cities are successfully attracting this generation, and therefore a core future workforce.

Oh, I see. Obviously, Nestpick wants these young entrepreneurs to live in furnished apartments, rather than sleep on the office floors of their startups. Good luck with that!

"Millennials grew up in a shrinking world, where the internet opened doors their parents never could have dreamed of, and budget airlines made those avenues real possibilities. It's now possible to live and work anywhere in the world, and these opportunities are shaping how our planet will look to future generations." says Ömer Kücükdere, Managing Director of Nestpick. "We must learn to adapt to the needs of younger people in order to have a thriving economy, and we believe that this ranking offers valuable insights to those cities looking for regeneration from a younger demographic."

Ha! Will it be possible to come and live in Brexit Britain? Will it even be possible to leave Brexit Britain? I thought we were shutting up shop, like North Korea.

Well, anyway, we don't want the list of top cities. [Some copy and pasting mess up, you don't need to know.] But, uh, findings:
