A Case for HS3? 19% of Start-Ups are in the North
Perhaps unsurprisingly, London performs best in terms of outright numbers of start-ups with 27% (76,742) of the UK’s total start-ups. This is way ahead of the next best region, the South East, which has 14% (39,285) of the total.
However, combining start-ups across the north (North East, North West, and Yorkshire and Humber = 53,421) creates a strong regional hub with 19% of the total start-ups.
