Every year KPMG conducts surveys with global technology leaders to answer one burning question: Which cities do they believe will become the next technology innovation hubs?
According to KPMG’s latest 2020 report, Singapore took first place as the top alternative to Silicon Valley – a huge step up from last year’s seventh place. Major contributing factors in Singapore that led to this jump include advanced IT infrastructure, strong IP protection laws, increased government support, and a deep pool talent for investors looking to set up in Asia.

Technology company leaders ranked the below factors as the most important things needed to enable a city to become a technology innovation center. Possessing virtually every factor on the list, it’s clear why Singapore is slated as the next Silicon Valley.
