Imagine the perfect shopping list for a tech company looking to expand. Or in fact, you don’t have to. Savills, one of the world’s largest property agents, has just compiled this list. 

Savills has made a list of 22 cities that are at the forefront of the global tech industry by ranking cities based on five categories: Business environment, tech environment, talent pool, real estate costs, and the buzz and wellness of the city. 

 Copenhagen is, in this regard, ranked as the third most important tech city in Europe. 

Copenhagen's tech start-up scene has accelerated rapidly and already given birth to a few big successes: Online takeaway giant Just Eat has its roots in a Danish basement. The city tops our ‘wellness’ ranking. The concept of ‘hygge’, the Danish way of making everyday living extraordinary, epitomises this.
