Top 10 most innovative cities in China | Updated: 2017-02-16 07:00

Beijing, Shenzhen and Shanghai are ranked as the most innovative cities in China, according to a list released by a research institute under media conglomerate China Business Network Co Ltd.

The New First-Tier Cities Research Institute evaluated China's 19 first-tier cities based on four indexes: hot money index, unicorn index, house renting index and partner index.

The hot money index measures a city's attraction to investment, diversity of startup projects and the number of startup incubators.

The unicorn index gauges the number of high-tech companies, patents and leading high-tech products a city has.

The house renting index is used to indicate the cost of innovation, while the partner index measures the intensity of competition on the talent market, and a city's talent supply and reserves.

The list used data from entrepreneurship service platform 36 Kr, human resources website, enterprise credit service platform, as well as official data and high-tech firm lists.

Let's take a look at the top 10 innovative cities in China.
