Sao Paolo at #8 as one of the “most active startup ecosystems around the world“(above Paris?) I somehow missed a few years in Brazil’s development. Have not heard of anything “happening” in Sao Paolo.
Another surprise “Work Ethic: Companies in Silicon Valley work 35% more than companies in New York City. In Silicon Valley teams work 9.5 hours a day on average vs. 8 hours in London and 7 in New York City” .
Having lived next to Amazon and Microsoft….10 hour work days seem pretty standart around here. I always stereotyped New Yorkers as the crazy workaholics, so if we on the west coast worked 10 hour days, I assumed they must be working 14 hour days. I also assumed that San Francisco offered better living conditions then New York because it offered a more balanced life and in New York there is no balance. Interesting to see them say that an average New Yorker’s work day in a tech company is only 7 hours/day.
