technology entrepreneurs looking to follow in the footsteps of all the
great founders who built their companies in a place known as Silicon
Companies including Intel, Apple, Google and Facebook, just to name a few, were all started in Silicon Valley, which is recognized the world over as the premiere source of so much technological innovation.

state has earned the distinction.
