European Digital City Index

The European Digital City Index looks at how different cities in Europe support digital entrepreneurs.   On the 2016 Index, Ljubljana occupies 47th place (of 60) for support for startups and 49th place (also of 60) for support for scaleups.
The European Digital City Index is produced as part of the European Digital Forum, which is dedicated to supporting digital enterprise across Europe. For startups and scaleups, the Index gives information on the strengths and weaknesses of local ecosystems; this is to enable appropriate planning. For policymakers, the Index is a tool for comparing cities and highlighting those areas to which more resources will have to be directed.

The Index features 10 topics and 40 indicators to aid an analysis of how Member States’ capital cities, along with 32 other European cities recognised as being ‘digital hubs’, support digital enterprise.
