What we say about Silicon Valley

  • There is no greater country on Earth for entrepreneurship than America. In every category, from the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, where I live, to University R&D labs, to countless Main Street small business owners, Americans are taking risks, embracing new ideas and – most importantly – creating jobs.

    — Eric Ries —
  • The real force of Silicon Valley is the mentality, the spirit. There’s no reason at all that can’t be replicated in Paris.

    — Xavier Niel —
  • The natives of Silicon Valley learned long ago that when you share your knowledge with someone else, one plus one usually equals three. You both learn each other’s ideas, and you come up with new ones.

    — Vivek Wadhwa —
  • My friends are people who like building cool stuff. We always have this joke about people who want to just start companies without making something valuable. There’s a lot of that in Silicon Valley.

    — Mark Zuckerberg —
  • I think the high-tech industry is used to developing new things very quickly. It’s the Silicon Valley way of doing business: You either move very quickly and you work hard to improve your product technology, or you get destroyed by some other company.

    — Elon Musk —
  • An open-minded and diverse population that readily shares information, encourages experimentation, accepts failure and dispenses with formality and hierarchy is what makes Silicon Valley the successful hub that it is.

    — Vivek Wadhwa —
  • Silicon Valley is the best place to start a tech company in so many ways.

    — Vivek Wadhwa —
  • Silicon Valley is a mindset, not a location.

    — Reid Hoffman —
