Startup Costs

San Francisco may be the center of the startup world, but it's also the most expensive place in the world to start a new company. An SF startup will pay, on average, $102,000 for prime real estate, higher than anywhere else in the country and behind only Beijing and London globally. Talent is also expensive, with the cost of two software engineers coming in at $217,000 and pushing the total cost of starting a new venture in the city to $388,513 a year. [Business Insider]
