What is The Next Silicon Valley?
The Next Silicon Valley is an advocate for developing regions. We provide strategic information and development opportunities to companies entering and expanding into emerging markets.
Why the need?
Geographical location – place – and destination will continue to be of paramount importance to companies and investors around the world. Yes, all roads still lead to Menlo Park’s Sand Hill Road, the venture capital capitol of the world. But now, the innovation and technology development engine that was Silicon Valley has been democratically dispersed throughout the world. ‘The Next Silicon Valley’ is now an informal global network of locations, regions, places, and destinations, all connected by a common objective – attract and nurture technology based economic development.
In the post Brexit/Trump, the adage ‘technology disrupts, and it disrupts absolutely’ is appropriate. In other words, what’s been done in recent years can’t be easily undone. This maxim is behind the rebirth of Detroit and its challenge to Silicon Valley as the leading technology hub in the United States. The Ford Motor Company has described itself as a ‘mobility company’, one that sees the car evolving from being the ultimate industrial product and ultimate consumer product to the ultimate technology product.
Similar transformation and rebirths are happening within cities, regions, places, locations, destinations – and enterprise around the world. Everyone is trying to identify and nurture available local resources, and sources of competitive advantage, in order to compete to ply on the global stage of technology-based economic development.
But discovering those new destinations can be a challenge. And regions are keen to talk about what makes their location attractive.
