BERLIN -- Denver placed No. 12 on the “Top 20 Cities for Business Ecosystem” list compiled by Germany-based furnished apartment search engine Nestpick.

According to Nestpick, the study reveals the top cities in the world for startup opportunities based on the cities’ business ecosystem and appeal to Millenials.

“Millenials 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,” said Omar Kukukdere, Nestpick managing director.

“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.”
